sssd - System Security Services Daemon
SSSD provides a set of daemons to manage access to remote directories
and authentication mechanisms. It provides an NSS and PAM interface
toward the system and a pluggable backend system to connect to multiple
different account sources as well as D-Bus interface. It is also the
basis to provide client auditing and policy services for projects like
FreeIPA. It provides a more robust database to store local users as
well as extended user data.
Debug level to run the daemon with. 0 is the default as well as the
lowest allowed value, 10 is the most verbose mode. This setting
overrides the settings from config file. This parameter implies -i.

log files are stored in /var/log/sssd and there are separate log
files for every SSSD service and domain.
