This is not documented, neither in manpage nor admin guide.
Also slapd should preferably catch attempts to set them wrong, and
either adjust them or fail the change. That's so for many config
options, but more important for interactions between options.
The details here are unimportant. Since entry cache items hang off of dncache
items, the only consequence of a "wrong" configuration here is that the entry
cache could only ever grow to the size of the dncache.
At any rate, the code has been patched to set dncachesize >= cachesize, and
the manpage updated correspondingly, but there's no critical problem without
