Re: kernal parameters

Hi Arun,

The fine tuning is based on the applications running on the server.The configuration file is /etc/sysconfigtab. and this file should not be edited manually .

If you have database running on the system you need to fine tune based on the applications and databases present on the system.
The below documentation area have a document for displaying and setting up the kernal configuration.

Re: kernal parameters


You can use

sysconfig -q subsystem-name

to query the parameters set for that subsystem.
