NAME

       nsscache - synchronise a local NSS cache with an upstream data source

SYNOPSIS

       nsscache [global options] command [command options]

DESCRIPTION

       nsscache  synchronises  a local NSS cache against a remote data source.
       This approach allows the administrator to separate the network from the
       NSS lookup codepath, improving speed and reliability of name services.

OPTIONS

       Global options alter general program behaviour:

       -v, --verbose
              enable verbose output

       -d, --debug
              enable debugging output

       -c FILE, --config-file=FILE
              read configuration from FILE

       --version
              show program's version number and exit

       -h, --help
              show this help message and exit

COMMANDS

   update
       Performs  an  update  of  the  configured  caches  from  the configured
       sources.

       -f, --full
              force a full update from the data source

       --force
              force the update, overriding  any  safeguards  and  checks  that
              would otherwise prevent the update from occurring. e.g. normally
              empty results from the data source are ignored as bogus --  this
              option will instruct the program to ignore its intuition and use
              the empty map

       -m MAPS, --map=MAPS
              NSS map to operate on, can be supplied multiple times

       -h, --help
              show help for the update command

   verify
       Perform verification of the built caches and validation of  the  system
       NSS configuration.

       -m MAPS, --map=MAPS
              NSS map to operate on, can be supplied multiple times

       -h, --help
              show help for the verify command

   status
       Show  the last update time of each configured cache, and other metrics,
       optionally in a machine-readable format.

       -m MAPS, --map=MAPS
              NSS map to operate on, can be supplied multiple times

       -h, --help
              show help for the status command

   repair
       Verify that the configuration is correct, that the source is reachable,
       then perform a full synchronisation of the cache.

       -m MAPS, --map=MAPS
              NSS map to operate on, can be supplied multiple times

       -h, --help
              show help for the repair command
