sysctl.conf - sysctl preload/configuration file
is a simple file containing sysctl values to be read in and
set by sysctl
. The syntax is simply as follows:
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.
# sysctl.conf sample
kernel.domainname = example.com
; this one has a space which will be written to the sysctl!
kernel.modprobe = /sbin/mod probe
- /etc/sysctl.d/*.conf /usr/local/lib/sysctl.d/*.conf

where sysctl preload files usually exist. See also sysctl option
