-==============================================================
-
-This file contains the documentation for the sysctl files in
-/proc/sys/net and is valid for Linux kernel version 2.4.0-test11-pre4.
-
-The interface to the networking parts of the kernel is located in
-/proc/sys/net. The following table shows all possible subdirectories.You may
-see only some of them, depending on your kernel's configuration.

-1. /proc/sys/net/core - Network core options
--------------------------------------------------------
-
-bpf_jit_enable
---------------
-
-This enables Berkeley Packet Filter Just in Time compiler.
-Currently supported on x86_64 architecture, bpf_jit provides a framework
-to speed packet filtering, the one used by tcpdump/libpcap for example.
-Values :
- 0 - disable the JIT (default value)
- 1 - enable the JIT
- 2 - enable the JIT and ask the compiler to emit traces on kernel log.
-
-dev_weight
---------------
-
-The maximum number of packets that kernel can handle on a NAPI interrupt,
-it's a Per-CPU variable.
-Default: 64
-
-rmem_default
-------------
-
-The default setting of the socket receive buffer in bytes.
-
-rmem_max
---------
-
-The maximum receive socket buffer size in bytes.
-
-wmem_default
-------------
-
-The default setting (in bytes) of the socket send buffer.
-
-wmem_max
---------
-
-The maximum send socket buffer size in bytes.
-
-message_burst and message_cost
-------------------------------
-
-These parameters are used to limit the warning messages written to the kernel
-log from the networking code. They enforce a rate limit to make a
-denial-of-service attack impossible. A higher message_cost factor, results in
-fewer messages that will be written. Message_burst controls when messages will
-be dropped. The default settings limit warning messages to one every five
-seconds.
-
-warnings
---------
-
-This controls console messages from the networking stack that can occur because
-of problems on the network like duplicate address or bad checksums. Normally,
-this should be enabled, but if the problem persists the messages can be
-disabled.
-
-netdev_budget
--------------
-
-Maximum number of packets taken from all interfaces in one polling cycle (NAPI
-poll). In one polling cycle interfaces which are registered to polling are
-probed in a round-robin manner. The limit of packets in one such probe can be
-set per-device via sysfs class/net/<device>/weight .
-
-netdev_max_backlog
-------------------
-
-Maximum number of packets, queued on the INPUT side, when the interface
-receives packets faster than kernel can process them.
-
-netdev_tstamp_prequeue
-----------------------
-
-If set to 0, RX packet timestamps can be sampled after RPS processing, when
-the target CPU processes packets. It might give some delay on timestamps, but
-permit to distribute the load on several cpus.
-
-If set to 1 (default), timestamps are sampled as soon as possible, before
-queueing.
-
-optmem_max
-----------
-
-Maximum ancillary buffer size allowed per socket. Ancillary data is a sequence
-of struct cmsghdr structures with appended data.
-
-2. /proc/sys/net/unix - Parameters for Unix domain sockets
--------------------------------------------------------
-
-There is only one file in this directory.
-unix_dgram_qlen limits the max number of datagrams queued in Unix domain
-socket's buffer. It will not take effect unless PF_UNIX flag is specified.
-
-
-3. /proc/sys/net/ipv4 - IPV4 settings
--------------------------------------------------------
-Please see: Documentation/networking/ip-sysctl.txt and ipvs-sysctl.txt for
-descriptions of these entries.
-
-
-4. Appletalk
--------------------------------------------------------
-
-The /proc/sys/net/appletalk directory holds the Appletalk configuration data
-when Appletalk is loaded. The configurable parameters are:
-
-aarp-expiry-time
-----------------
-
-The amount of time we keep an ARP entry before expiring it. Used to age out
-old hosts.
-
-aarp-resolve-time
------------------
-
-The amount of time we will spend trying to resolve an Appletalk address.
-
-aarp-retransmit-limit
----------------------
-
-The number of times we will retransmit a query before giving up.
-
-aarp-tick-time
---------------
-
-Controls the rate at which expires are checked.
-
-The directory /proc/net/appletalk holds the list of active Appletalk sockets
-on a machine.
-
-The fields indicate the DDP type, the local address (in network:node format)
-the remote address, the size of the transmit pending queue, the size of the
-received queue (bytes waiting for applications to read) the state and the uid
-owning the socket.
-
-/proc/net/atalk_iface lists all the interfaces configured for appletalk.It
-shows the name of the interface, its Appletalk address, the network range on
-that address (or network number for phase 1 networks), and the status of the
-interface.
-
-/proc/net/atalk_route lists each known network route. It lists the target
-(network) that the route leads to, the router (may be directly connected), the
-route flags, and the device the route is using.
-
-
-5. IPX
--------------------------------------------------------
-
-The IPX protocol has no tunable values in proc/sys/net.
-
-The IPX protocol does, however, provide proc/net/ipx. This lists each IPX
-socket giving the local and remote addresses in Novell format (that is
-network:node:port). In accordance with the strange Novell tradition,
-everything but the port is in hex. Not_Connected is displayed for sockets that
-are not tied to a specific remote address. The Tx and Rx queue sizes indicate
-the number of bytes pending for transmission and reception. The state
-indicates the state the socket is in and the uid is the owning uid of the
-socket.
-
-The /proc/net/ipx_interface file lists all IPX interfaces. For each interface
-it gives the network number, the node number, and indicates if the network is
-the primary network. It also indicates which device it is bound to (or
-Internal for internal networks) and the Frame Type if appropriate. Linux
-supports 802.3, 802.2, 802.2 SNAP and DIX (Blue Book) ethernet framing for
-IPX.
-
-The /proc/net/ipx_route table holds a list of IPX routes. For each route it
-gives the destination network, the router node (or Directly) and the network
-address of the router (or Connected) for internal networks.
