Using configure to change kernel resources
utility is a menu-driven program
that presents each tunable kernel parameter
and prompts for modification.
To change a kernel parameter using configure,
do the following:
Enter the following commands as root to run configure:
The configure menu displays
groups of parameter categories;
their individual meanings are discussed in
``Kernel parameters that you can change using configure''.
Choose a category by entering the number preceding it.
The resources in that category are displayed, one by one,
each with its current value.
Enter a new value for the resource, or to retain
the current value, press <Enter>.
After all the resources in the category are displayed,
configure returns to the category menu prompt.
Return to the Main Menu to choose another category
or exit configure by entering ``q''.
The software drivers associated with a parameter must
be present in the kernel for the setting of the parameter
to have any effect.
After you finish changing parameters, link them
into a new kernel and reboot your system as described in
``Relinking the kernel''.
If you wish to set the values of parameters defined in
/etc/conf/cf.d/mtune from a shell script, you should
command as described in
``Using idtune to reallocate kernel resources''.
