Nscd caches name service lookups and can dramatically improve
performance with NIS+, and may help with DNS as well. Note that you
can't use nscd with 2.0 kernels because of bugs in the kernel-side
thread support. Unfortunately, nscd happens to hit these bugs
particularly hard.
Install nscd if you need a name service lookup caching daemon, and
you're not using a version 2.0 kernel.
