Try rebooting your NIS server; we've seen memory leaks getting out of
hand and as a result the yp servers get dumb.
% ps -p `pgrep yp -d,` -o pid,vsz,rss,comm
If VSZ >> RSS then assume memory leak. Here is our winbindd for example
(on a solaris box)
$ ps -p `pgrep bind -d,` -o pid,vsz,rss,comm
PID VSZ RSS COMMAND
515 3184 1880 /usr/sbin/rpcbind
23590 359912 8352 /usr/local/samba/sbin/winbindd
clearly there is a leak, and it needs a reboot.
