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

NAME
     sysctl.conf -- sysctl variables to set at system startup

DESCRIPTION
     sysctl.conf contains a list of sysctl(8) variable assignments that is
     read at system startup by rc(8) early on in the boot sequence.

     The file is made up of sysctl(8) variable assignments (variable=value)
     with comments designated by a hash mark ('#').

FILES
     /etc/sysctl.conf

EXAMPLES
     To turn on IP forwarding, one would use the following line:

           net.inet.ip.forwarding=1

     To cause the kernel to reboot on a panic, instead of dropping into the
     debugger, the following can be used:

           ddb.panic=0
