Description of problem:
All of our servers are experiencing system hangs from time to time. They are all using LDAP authentication. When the condition occurs, any command that relies on the availability of the nscd socket hangs. Invoking any of these commands with strace shows that they are waiting for a free socket. Also, "netstat -a" shows 6 active sockets are in use. I tried increasing the trhead count to 20, but the magic number stays at 6. Disabling or recycling nscd always clears up the problem.
