Description Rex Dieter 2006-01-26 09:45:29 EST
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
(like suggested-size)
2.  Is counter-intuitive.  I, at least, expected things to get cleared/reset
when nscd was restarted.
Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2006-01-26 09:47:31 EST
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.
Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2006-01-26 10:52:28 EST
OK, then let's rename this bug to "changed value of suggested-size in
/etc/nscd.conf not honored on restart"
Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2006-01-26 10:54:17 EST
Or "persistent flag not documented in nscd.conf manpage".  (-:
