Hi, I’m looking for a toturial or manpage describing all the thing that you can set with sysctl on RHEL 6 or CentOS 6. It apperas the the default /etc/sysctl.conf coming with the distribution gives a couple of errors on bridgen. Any hints???
Hint 1. Find what rpm package installed the file. rpm -qf /etc/sysctl.conf
Hint 2. Find out what documentation came with that package. rpm -qd initscripts
Hint 3. See if you can find anything in those files.
Hint 4. Search for “linux sysctl howto”
(Reading a few pages let me know that it won’t be a simple webpage with all the answers.)
Hint 5. Search for “linux sysctl parameters”
(One hit looks pretty good. Read it for advice.)
Hint 6. Search for “linux sysctl bridgen”
$ sysctl -a gives you a list of all things you can set
Besides google or similar, documentation for these things are in the documentation for the kernel install the kernel-doc package you can get a list of possibly interesting files (although this list may be not comprehensive, I do not know) with
$ rpm -ql kernel-doc|grep sysctl
