I have been looking for a few hours now to find 'detailed' information
on how the pass word notification driver actually works. It seems to use
the heartbeat and current time variables but I do not understand how it
gets the password expiration for each account. Best I can see it does an
LDAP search but it seems like it would take a long time to query every
account for that value nor does it seem like that would be efficient to
scan every account and certain intervals. I have done research and read
the following links, but I still just can't find the detailed
information I am looking for on how this driver reads/gets the password
expiration date for each account in the directory.


Thank you in advance.
