NAME

       systemd-sysctl.service, systemd-sysctl - Configure kernel parameters at boot

SYNOPSIS

       /lib/systemd/systemd-sysctl [OPTIONS...] [CONFIGFILE...]

       systemd-sysctl.service

DESCRIPTION

       systemd-sysctl.service is an early boot service that configures sysctl(8) kernel
       parameters by invoking /lib/systemd/systemd-sysctl.

       When invoked with no arguments, /lib/systemd/systemd-sysctl applies all directives from
       configuration files listed in sysctl.d(5). If one or more filenames are passed on the
       command line, only the directives in these files are applied.

       In addition, --prefix= option may be used to limit which sysctl settings are applied.

       See sysctl.d(5) for information about the configuration of sysctl settings. After sysctl
       configuration is changed on disk, it must be written to the files in /proc/sys before it
       takes effect. It is possible to update specific settings, or simply to reload all
       configuration, see Examples below.

OPTIONS

       --prefix=
           Only apply rules with the specified prefix.

       --cat-config
           Copy the contents of config files to standard output. Before each file, the filename
           is printed as a comment.

       --no-pager
           Do not pipe output into a pager.

       -h, --help
           Print a short help text and exit.

       --version
           Print a short version string and exit.

EXAMPLES

       Example 1. Reset all sysctl settings

           systemctl restart systemd-sysctl

       Example 2. View coredump handler configuration

           # sysctl kernel.core_pattern
           kernel.core_pattern = |/libexec/abrt-hook-ccpp %s %c %p %u %g %t %P %I

       Example 3. Update coredump handler configuration

           # /lib/systemd/systemd-sysctl --prefix kernel.core_pattern

       This searches all the directories listed in sysctl.d(5) for configuration files and writes
       /proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern.

       Example 4. Update coredump handler configuration according to a specific file

           # /lib/systemd/systemd-sysctl 50-coredump.conf

       This applies all the settings found in 50-coredump.conf. Either
       /etc/sysctl.d/50-coredump.conf, or /run/sysctl.d/50-coredump.conf, or
       /usr/lib/sysctl.d/50-coredump.conf will be used, in the order of preference.

       See sysctl(8) for various ways to directly apply sysctl settings.
