Easy points: kctune

If I want to change an immed tunable, say dbc_max_pct/dbc_min_pct, I believe I could do so like this:

kctune dbc_min_pct=1 dbc_max_pct=3

Will this also make the change saved in the config so that when I reboot it will be persistent?

How can I ensure that the change is activated immediately AND also is persistent across reboots? Maybe that one command does both, but it is not clear from the man pages.

The man page is pretty clear I thought

"By default, changes to the currently running kernel configuration are applied immediately. Some changes cannot be applied without a reboot; if any such changes are requested, or the -h flag is given, all changes on the kctune command line will be held until next boot."

and under -c "... kctune will view or change tunables in the currently running kernel configuration."

But why speculate just ask for the full report. Use for example: kctune -v dbc_min_pct

fwiw,

Re: Easy points: kctune

"Running configuration" is a little ambiguous. Does it mean just in memory or also persistent? I assume persistent now based on your response, correct?

OK, I went and just tried it--which I don't like to ever do without strong confidence in outcome. And the answer is: it asks you what you want to do during execution. Namely, save it or not.

I'll give points for above and close this out. Sorry for asking a naive question, frankly, it was't clear to me.
