NAME
sys_attrs_ipv6 - ipv6 subsystem attributes DESCRIPTION
This reference page lists and describes attributes for the Internet Protocol Version 6 (ipv6) kernel subsystem. Refer to the sys_attrs(5) reference page for an introduction to the topic of kernel subsystem attributes. A value that enables (1) or disables (0) rate-limiting of ICMPv6 errors (see RFC 2463). Default value: 1 (enabled) The maximum time, in milliseconds, to wait before sending ICMPv6 error packets to a particular destination IPv6 address. Default value: 1000 (milliseconds) Minimum value: 1 Maximum value: LONG_MAX, or 9 quintillion The minimum time, in milliseconds, to wait before sending ICMPv6 error packets to a particular destination IPv6 address. Default value: 100 (milliseconds) Minimum value: 1 Maximum value: LONG_MAX, or 9 quintillion The number of packets to send before starting the ICMPv6 error packet rate-limiting timers. Default value: 10 (packets) Minimum value: 0 Maximum value: INT_MAX, or 2 billion A value that enables (1) or disables (0) a system's ability to forward IPv6 packets that are not addressed to the system. This functionality is usually enabled by using the /usr/sbin/ip6_setup command. Default value: 0 (disabled) For systems functioning as routers, both ipv6forwarding and ipv6router attributes must be 1. For IPv6 hosts that want to forward source routed packets, the ipv6forwarding attribute must be 1. A value that enables (1) or disables (0) a system's ability to forward IPV6 packets that are not addressed to the system. This functionality is usually enabled by using the /usr/sbin/ip6_setup command. When enabled, Neighbor Advertisements from the system have the IsRouter flag set (see RFC 2461). Default value: 0 (disabled) For systems functioning as routers, both ipv6forwarding and ipv6router attributes must be 1. SEE ALSO

NAME
sys_attrs_socket - socket subsystem attributes DESCRIPTION
This reference page lists and describes attributes for the Socket (socket) kernel subsystem. Refer to the sys_attrs(5) reference page for an introduction to the topic of kernel subsystem attributes. The number of lock entries to use when taking a lock reference on an external cluster mbuf (more is better). Default value: 64 (entries) Minimum value: 0 Maximum value: 8192 The mbuf_ext_lock_count attribute is useful only on SMP machines where locks are used. The CPU number to which to bind the protocol timer thread. Default value: 0 Minimum value: 0 Maximum value: UINT_MAX, or 4 billion Maximum size of the socket buffer. Default value: SB_MAX, or 1048576 (bytes) Minimum value: 1 Maximum value: 4 billion The maximum size of packets to be copied into existing mbuf clusters, or compressed. Only packets of size less than sbcom- press_threshold minus 1 are copied into existing mbuf clusters. Default value: 0 (bytes) Minimum value: 0 Maximum value: UINT_MAX, or 4 billion If the sbcompress_threshold attribute value is 0, mbuf cluster compression is disabled. A read-only attribute that is incremented when a received SYN packet is dropped because the number of queued SYN_RCVD connections for a socket is equal to that socket's backlog limit. The initial value is 0. A read-only attribute that shows the maximum number of pending requests to any of the server sockets in the system. The initial value is 0. Maximum number of pending TCP connections (the socket listen queue limit). Default value: 1024 (connections) Minimum value: 0 Maximum value: 65535 If the listen queue connection limit is too small, incoming connect requests may be dropped. Pending TCP connections can be caused by lost packets in the Internet or denial of service attacks. A read-only attribute that is incremented when a received SYN packet is dropped because the number of queued SYN_RCVD connections for a socket is equal to the value of the somaxconn attribute. The initial value is 0. Minimum number of pending TCP connections socket listen queue (backlog). The attribute controls how many SYN packets can be handled simultaneously before additional requests are discardrd. Default value: 0 Minimum value: 0 Maximum value: 65535 The value of the sominconn attribute overrides the application-specific backlog if the sominconn value is greater than the backlog requested by the application. A value that enables (1) or disables (0) socket writes without the need for a user space to kernel space copy operation. The umc (unified mbuf cache) attribute is used in conjunction with the mmap(2) system call. Default value: 0 (disabled) The size of the umc (unified mbuf cache) buffer. Default value: 1024 (bytes) Minimum value: 0 Maximum value: INT_MAX, or 2 billion SEE ALSO
