TDBs and various other files?

I've been looking around the code lately, and I was wondering what TDBs
are being used by which process and what for. (and files, for that
Is there an documentation for that? If there is I'd love a reference.
For what I've gathered:
brlock.tdb - Seems to be a lock database. Does that have
effect if I turn locking off?
connections.tdb - Is that the file the keeps all session information?
is this just an informative file or is it just
for message passing?
locking.tdb - Looks like a lock database too, what's the
between this one one and brlock? Does _that_
any effect if I turn locking off?
[ Skipped drivers and printing TDBs, since I know nothing about that. ]
sessionid.tdb - ?
share_info.tdb - ?
browse.dat - NMB keeps that... And I see that lanman.c
- but does anyone else? Does smbd _really_
about browse.dat or is the comment wrong?
messages.tdb - A message passing file - what I've seen are only
PING and DEBUG messages. Are there any other
messages? What significance do they have?
unexpected.tdb - Due to a bug in '95 some smb requests go to the
nmb port, and nmbd puts those there. Does
pick up those requests?
winbindd_cache.tdb - winbind cache (Ahhm)
winbindd_idmap.tdb - The winbind ID map - does this get generated
when winbind binds to the PDC? When is it
Any help would be appreciated!
