Reliable client-side NSS caching

Registered by Etienne Goyer on 2008-12-02

We need a reliable mechanism to dynamically cache NSS entries that scale and remain manageable with a very large number of clients using network directories with large number of entries (more than 100K). The goal is to improve resilience and performance, and to allow disconnected operation. Various approach are possible, but traditional NSS caching mechanisms, such as nscd and nss-updatedb, either fail or do not fulfill all aspect of the use-case.
