NSCD Database File Layout

Posted: Jun 21, 2013, 18:00

I had to do some analysis on the nscd database file this week, for which I hacked up a quick program to dump the contents of an nscd database file. I intend to post the code on the upstream mailing list when it is complete, but for now I wrote up a description of the file layout on the glibc wiki since there isn’t any documentation around it.
