Oracle Solaris Tunable Parameters Reference Manual

Overview of Tuning IP Suite Parameters

For new information about IP forwarding, see New and Changed TCP/IP Parameters.

You can set all of the tuning parameters described in this chapter by using the ndd command except for the following parameters:

These parameters can only be set in the /etc/system file.

For example, use the following syntax to set TCP/IP parameters by using the ndd command:

# ndd -set driver parameter

For more information, see ndd(1M).

Although the SMF framework provides a method for managing system services, ndd commands are still included in system startup scripts. For more information on creating a startup script, see Using Run Control Scripts in System Administration Guide: Basic Administration.
