NAMEsysctl.conf - sysctl(8) preload/configuration file
DESCRIPTIONsysctl.conf is a simple file containing sysctl values to be read in and set by sysctl(8). The syntax is simply as follows:
# comment ; comment token = value
Note that blank lines are ignored, and whitespace before and after a token or value is ignored, although a value can contain whitespace within. Lines which begin with a # or ; are considered comments and ignored.
# sysctl.conf sample # kernel.domainname = example.com ; this one has a space which will be written to the sysctl! kernel.modprobe = /sbin/mod probe
