NAME

  sys_attrs_dli	- dli subsystem	attributes

DESCRIPTION

  This reference page lists and	describes attributes for the Data Link Inter-
  face (dli) kernel subsystem. Refer to	the sys_attrs(5) reference page	for
  an introduction to the topic of kernel subsystem attributes.



  max_ifq_length
      The number of received packets that are queued to	DLI.

      Default value: 512 (packets)

      Minimum value: 0

      Maximum value: 1024

      If many packets are dropped, you may want	to increase the	value.



  mop_sysid
      A	value that enables (1) or disables (0) MOP_SYSID messages, which are
      sent out periodically to keep bridges informed about the system's	loca-
      tion on the network.

      In some cases, these messages might be misinterpreted by legacy real-
      time devices that	are configured to respond to broadcast messages. If
      this happens, you	can disable the	messages to resolve the	problem.

      Default value: 1 (enabled)



  must_be_root
      A	value that enables (1) or disables (0) the requirement that the	user
      of the raw socket	interface must be root.	Setting	this attribute to 0
      allows any user to use the raw socket interface to DLI.

      DECnet and STREAMS protocol stacks use a DLI-provided raw	interface to
      the data link.  DLI also provides	a raw socket interface.

      Default value: 1 (enabled)

      In a TruCluster environment, the value of	this attribute must be the
      same for all member systems.



  recvspace
      The maximum size of packets that can be received.

      Default value: 16384 (bytes)

      Minimum value: 0

      Maximum value: 16384



  sendspace
      The maximum size of packets that can be sent.

      Default value: 16384 (bytes)

      Minimum value: 0

      Maximum value: 16384
