Password file with over 3000 users.
I have a server which runs with normal passwd/shadow/group/gshadow
files. There are now over 3000 users and I am beginning to notice a
performance slowdown and it is about time I looked for something more
efficient - I like the idea of db or cdb database files.
- Must be pam compatible.
- Most users have MD5 passwords, but some are still crypt passwords. I
do not have ready access to the original plain text passwords.
- I don't want to mess around with too much, so I must have real "Unix
accounts" (UID's and home directories) for each user.
- Vanilla Debian "deb" packages.
What alternatives should I consider?
