given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

    },
  },
}

The only compulsory key per database is enable-cache. If false also subsequent keys for that database will be ignored.

The dbconfig parameter is configured with a lookup_option of a deep merge. So particular settings can be appended or overridden from hiera.

nscd::dbconfig:
  netgroup:
    check-files: false
  services:
    enable-cache: false
