SYSCTL.CONF(5)                             File Formats                            SYSCTL.CONF(5)

NAME
       sysctl.conf - sysctl preload/configuration file

DESCRIPTION
       sysctl.conf  is  a  simple  file containing sysctl values to be read in and set by sysctl.
       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

FILES
       /run/sysctl.d/*.conf
       /etc/sysctl.d/*.conf
       /usr/local/lib/sysctl.d/*.conf
       /usr/lib/sysctl.d/*.conf
       /lib/sysctl.d/*.conf
