           The  file  /etc/nscd.conf  is  read from nscd(8) at startup.  Each line
           specifies either an attribute and a value, or  an  attribute,  service,
           and  a  value.  Fields are separated either by SPACE or TAB characters.
           A '#' (number sign) indicates the beginning  of  a  comment;  following
           characters, up to the end of the line, are not interpreted by nscd.
           Valid services are passwd, group, hosts, services, or netgroup.
           logfile debug-file-name
                  Specifies  name  of the file to which debug info should be writ-
           debug-level value
                  Sets the desired debug level.  The default is 0.
           threads number
                  This is the number of threads  that  are  started  to  wait  for
                  requests.  At least five threads will always be created.
           max-threads number
                  Specifies the maximum number of threads.  The default is 32.
           server-user user
                  If  this  option  is  set, nscd will run as this user and not as
                  root.  If a separate cache for every user is  used  (-S  parame-
                  ter), this option is ignored.
           stat-user user
                  Specifies the user who is allowed to request statistics.
           reload-count unlimited | number
                  Limit  on the number of times a cached entry gets reloaded with-
                  out being used before it gets removed.  The default is 5.
           paranoia <yes|no>
                  Enabling paranoia mode causes nscd to  restart  itself  periodi-
                  cally.  The default is no.
           restart-interval time
                  Sets the restart interval to time seconds if periodic restart is
                  enabled by enabling paranoia mode.  The default is 3600.
           enable-cache service <yes|no>
                  Enables or disables the specified service cache.  The default is
           positive-time-to-live service value
                  Sets  the  TTL  (time-to-live)  for positive entries (successful
                  queries) in the specified cache for service.  Value is  in  sec-
                  onds.   Larger  values  increase cache hit rates and reduce mean
                  response times, but increase problems with cache coherence.
                  Enables or disables checking the file belonging to the specified
                  service for changes.  The  files  are  /etc/passwd,  /etc/group,
                  /etc/hosts,  /etc/services  and  /etc/netgroup.   The default is
           persistent service <yes|no>
                  Keep the content of the cache for service over server  restarts;
                  useful when paranoia mode is set.  The default is no.
           shared service <yes|no>
                  The  memory  mapping of the nscd databases for service is shared
                  with the clients so  that  they  can  directly  search  in  them
                  instead  of having to ask the daemon over the socket each time a
                  lookup is performed.  The default is no.
           max-db-size service bytes
                  The maximum allowable size, in bytes, of the database files  for
                  the service.  The default is 33554432.
           auto-propagate service <yes|no>
                  When  set  to  no  for passwd or group service, then the .byname
                  requests are not added to  passwd.byuid  or  group.bygid  cache.
                  This  can  help  with tables containing multiple records for the
                  same ID.  The default is yes.  This option  is  valid  only  for
                  services passwd and group.


           The default values stated in this manual page originate from the source
           code of nscd(8) and are used if not  overridden  in  the  configuration
           file.   The  default values used in the configuration file of your dis-
           tribution might differ.
