     nscd — name service caching daemon


     nscd [OPTION...]


     Nscd caches libc-issued requests to the Name Service. If retrieving NSS data is fairly
     expensive, nscd is able to speed up consecutive access to the same data dramatically and
     increase overall system performance.  Nscd should be run at boot time by /etc/init.d/nscd.

     -i, --invalidate TABLE
