    Command:

    nscd

    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           Nscd is a daemon that provides a cache for the most common name service
           requests.  The default configuration file,  /etc/nscd.conf,  determines
           the behavior of the cache daemon.  See nscd.conf(5).
    
           Nscd  provides  caching  for  accesses  of the passwd(5), group(5), and
           hosts(5) databases through standard libc  interfaces,  such  as  getpw-
           nam(3),  getpwuid(3),  getgrnam(3),  getgrgid(3), gethostbyname(3), and
           others.
    
           There are two caches for each database: a positive one for items found,
           and  a negative one for items not found.  Each cache has a separate TTL
           (time-to-live) period for its data.   Note  that  the  shadow  file  is
           specifically  not  cached.   getspnam(3)  calls  remain  uncached  as a
           result.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           --help will give you a list with all options and what they do.
    
    
    

    NOTES

           The daemon will try to watch for changes in configuration files  appro-
           priate  for each database (e.g., /etc/passwd for the passwd database or
           /etc/hosts and /etc/resolv.conf for the hosts database), and flush  the
           cache  when  these are changed.  However, this will happen only after a
           short delay (unless the inotify(7) mechanism is available and glibc 2.9
           or later is available), and this auto-detection does not cover configu-
           ration files required by nonstandard NSS modules, if any are  specified
           in  /etc/nsswitch.conf.   In  that  case, you need to run the following
           command after changing the configuration file of the database  so  that
           nscd invalidates its cache:
    
               $ nscd -i <database>
