NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       sysctl.conf - sysctl(8) preload/configuration file

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       sysctl.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.

EXAMPLE    [Toc]    [Back]

	      # sysctl.conf sample
	      #

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