       bdii - services


   Service: bdii-update
       The Berkeley Database Information Index (BDII) consists of two or more
       standard LDAP databases that are populated by an update process.  Port
       forwarding is used to enable one or more databases to serve data while
       one database is being refreshed.  The databases are refreshed
       cyclically.  Any incoming connection is forwarded to the most recently
       updated database, while old connections are allowed to linger until it
       is the turn of their database to be refreshed and restarted.  The
       update process obtains LDIF from either doing an ldapsearch on LDAP
       URLs or by running a local script (given by a URL with file protocol)
       that generates LDIF.  The LDIF is then inserted into the LDAP database.
       Options exist to update the list of LDAP URLs from a web page and to
       use an LDIF file from a web page to modify the data before it is
       inserted into the database.

       Configuration files: bdii-update.conf, bdii.conf

   Service: bdii-fwd
       The BDII fwd service is a TCP port forwarder that redirects request on
       the external service port to any of a set of backend ports, always
       taking the port of the most up-to-date slapd.  Old connections are
       allowed to linger until their slapd is restarted.  The bdii-fwd service
       is only started by the bdii-update service, never directly.  The
       service is stopped by the bdii init script on terminating the bdii

       Configuration files: bdii-fwd.conf (generated by bdii-update)

   Service: bdii-proxy
       Script to generate a proxy derived from the host certificate, to be
       made available to info providers that query secure services.  It is
       called once when the BDII is started and henceforth regularly by a cron

   Service: bdii
       SystemV init script to start/stop the bdii-update service and the bdii-
       related slapd daemons. It will write the slapd.conf configuration files
       needed by the bdii slapd instances based on bdii.conf and the schemas

       Configuration files: bdii.conf, schemas
