Modify semaphores parameters on Linux

I need to modify the semaphores parameters on a Linux server Debian 2.2.R3. How can I do it?

Try looking into these system calls:

semctl (2) - semaphore control operations
semget (2) - get a semaphore set identifier
semop (2) - semaphore operations

Can you give some more information?
Why do you think you need it?
What would you need to do with it?

I am not the project leader for Patrol. I only know they want to install the agent on servers I've installed. The business rules says what all servers need to have Patrol for monitoring and alerts.

OK... I am not familiar with Patrol... for some reason I'm thinking this is part of an SNMP setup - am I right?

Also, who says that you need to modify semaphore parameters, and for what reason? Is it the Patrol docs? The project leader?

They need to modify semaphores on SUN and HP servers (from Patrol documentation) so they suppose that there is the same need on Linux. But we don't find any documentation on this. This why I ask here !!! We are also asking BMC in the same time.
