This process monitor watches for the name service cache daemon to be running.
A failure indicates that the nscd daemon service on the system is down.
Check the service on the system by running ps -ef | grep nscd or by viewing the diagnostic in the Operations Manager Console. If it is down, you can start the process using the command '/etc/init.d/nscd start' or by clicking the recovery link in the Operations Manager Console.
For root cause analysis, first check the system logfile (/var/adm/messages), and view any related entries at the time of failure. You may also check the system for any process core files. Use '/usr/bin/pstack [corefile]' to print a stack trace which will assist in troubleshooting the cause of failure. Also, check the /etc/nsswitch.conf file if ldap is being used. This may be an indication of ldap authentication issues.
