I have been trying to get some settings in
/etc/sysctl.conf to take effect upon rebooting. So, I did the following as the
root user on this node running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64bit
# service procps status procps stop/waiting # service procps start procps stop/waiting
No matter how I tried. The
/etc/init/procps is stock as shown below. I have not touched it (not familiar with upstart yet).
# procps - set sysctls from /etc/sysctl.conf # # This task sets kernel sysctl variables from /etc/sysctl.conf and # /etc/sysctl.d description "set sysctls from /etc/sysctl.conf" instance $UPSTART_EVENTS env UPSTART_EVENTS= start on virtual-filesystems or static-network-up task script cat /etc/sysctl.d/*.conf /etc/sysctl.conf | sysctl -e -p - end script
I would appreciate it very much for any hints about how to start this
Up to now, I always have to manually issue
/sbin/sysctl -p /etc/sysctl.conf. It gets old really fast...
