The ldap_cachemgr utility provides caching for all parameters as specified and used by the LDAP naming service clients. The ldap_cachemgr utility uses the cache files which are originally created by executing the ldapclient(8) utility, as cold start files. Updates to the cache files take place dynamically if profiles are used to configure the client. See the init option to ldapclient(8).
The ldap_cachemgr utility helps improve the performance of the clients that are using LDAP as the Naming service repository. In order for the LDAP naming services to function properly, the ldap_cachemgr daemon must be running. ldap_cachemgr also improves system security by making the configuration files readable by superuser only.
The cache maintained by this daemon is shared by all the processes that access LDAP Naming information. All processes access this cache through a door call. On startup, ldap_cachemgr initializes the cache from the cache files. See ldapclient(8). Thus, the cache survives machine reboots.
The ldap_cachemgr daemon also acts as its own administration tool. If an instance of ldap_cachemgr is already running, commands are passed transparently to the running version.
The following example shows how to stop and to restart the ldap_cachemgr daemon.
example# svcadm disable network/ldap/client example# svcadm enable network/ldap/client
Example 2 Forcing ldap_cachemgr to Reread Configuration Files
The following example shows how to force ldap_cachemgr to reread the /var/ldap/ldap_client_file and /var/ldap/ldap_client_cred files
example# pkill -HUP ldap_cachemgr
Administrative actions on this service, such as enabling, disabling, or requesting restart, can be performed using svcadm(8). The service's status can be queried using the svcs(1) command.
