sysctl.conf -- kernel state defaults


The /etc/sysctl.conf file is read in when the system goes into multi-user mode to set default settings for the kernel. The /etc/sysctl.conf is in the format of the sysctl(8) command, i.e. sysctl_mib=value Comments are denoted by a ``#'' at the beginning of a line. Comments can also exist at the end of a line, as seen in the EXAMPLES section, below.


/etc/sysctl.conf Initial settings for sysctl(8).


To turn off logging of programs that exit due to fatal signals you may use a configuration like # Configure logging. kern.logsigexit=0 # Do not log fatal signal exits (e.g. sig 11)


rc.conf(5), rc(8), sysctl(8)


The sysctl.conf file appeared in FreeBSD 4.0.


If loadable kernel modules are used to introduce additional kernel func- tionality and sysctls to manage that functionality, sysctl.conf may be processed too early in the boot process to set those sysctls. DragonFly 5.1 December 30, 1999 DragonFly 5.1
