.SH NOTES
As the
.BR /etc/sysctl.conf
file is used to override default kernel parameter values, only a small number of parameters is predefined in the file.
Use
.IR /sbin/sysctl\ \-a
or follow
.BR sysctl (8)
to list all possible parameters. The description of individual parameters can be found in the kernel documentation.
