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 functionality and sysctls to manage that functionality, sysctl.conf may be processed too early in the boot process to set those sysctls. DragonFly 4.7 December 30, 1999 DragonFly 4.7
