Linux kernel tuning with sysctl

Enable, disable, and tune Linux kernel features with sysctl...
This command allows you to turn on or off numerous kernel parameters on the fly or you can edit a specific file to tune those same parameters. Either way you can modify all of the parameters listed in /proc/sys, so if you would like to see just how much you can modify, take a look at each of the subdirectories under the /proc/sys directory. For example, you can change the number of the maximum file descriptors on your machine by tuning the kern.maxfiles parameter.
