ldap_cachemgr Daemon

ldap_cachemgr is a daemon that runs on LDAP client machines. When you start the LDAP client, the ldap_cachemgr daemon is invoked. The daemon performs the following key functions.

  • Gains access to the configuration files, running as root

  • Refreshes the client configuration information stored in the profiles on the server and pulls this data from the clients

  • Maintains a sorted list of active LDAP servers to use

  • Improves lookup efficiency by caching some common lookup requests submitted by various clients

  • Improves the efficiency of host lookups

Note - ldap_cachemgr must be running at all times for LDAP naming services to work.

Refer to the ldap_cachemgr(1M) man page for detailed information.
