Linux/BSD kernel tuning and network security hardening optimizations, improving the performance of server systems via optimized sysctl tweaks

This file should be saved as /etc/sysctl.conf and can be activated using the command: sysctl -e -p /etc/sysctl.conf

For binary values, 0 is disabled, 1 is enabled. See sysctl(8) and sysctl.conf(5) for more details.

Intended use for dedicated server systems at high-speed networks with loads of RAM and bandwidth available Optimised and tuned for high-performance web/ftp/mail/dns servers with high connection-rates DO NOT USE at busy networks or xDSL/Cable connections where packetloss can be expected
