       sysctl.conf - sysctl(8) preload/configuration file

       sysctl.conf  is a simple file containing sysctl values to be read in and set by sysctl(8).
       The syntax is simply as follows:

	      # comment
	      ; comment

		token  =   value

       Note that blank lines are ignored, and whitespace before and after a  token  or	value  is
       ignored,  although a value can contain whitespace within.  Lines which begin with a # or ;
       are considered comments and ignored.

	      # sysctl.conf sample

		kernel.domainname = example.com
	      ; this one has a space which will be written to the sysctl!
		kernel.modprobe = /sbin/mod probe
