nscd.conf: "persistent" not documented
Last modified: 2008-05-12 15:43:28 EDT
The nscd database stored in /var/db/nscd is never cleared/reset, even on service
restart. This has some bad consequences:
1. Most importantly, (Some) values modified in /etc/nscd.conf never take effect
2. Is counter-intuitive. I, at least, expected things to get cleared/reset
when nscd was restarted.
If you have persistent flag set in nscd.conf for the database, then the database
is persistent. You can nscd -i [database] to reset it. Or if you don't want the
database persistent, just say so in nscd.conf.
OK, then let's rename this bug to "changed value of suggested-size in
/etc/nscd.conf not honored on restart"
Or "persistent flag not documented in nscd.conf manpage". (-:
