NAME

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

DESCRIPTION

       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

              # sysctl.conf sample
              #

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