NAME

sysctl.conf - sysctl preload/configuration file

DESCRIPTION

sysctl.conf is a simple file containing sysctl values to be read in and set by sysctl. 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.

EXAMPLE

# sysctl.conf sample # kernel.domainname = example.com ; this one has a space which will be written to the sysctl! kernel.modprobe = /sbin/mod probe

FILES

/run/sysctl.d/*.conf /etc/sysctl.d/*.conf /usr/local/lib/sysctl.d/*.conf /usr/lib/sysctl.d/*.conf /lib/sysctl.d/*.conf /etc/sysctl.conf The paths where sysctl preload files usually exist. See also sysctl option --sys‐ tem.
