Dummynet tweaks problem



  • So i was messing around with the dummynet settings and noticed something.  If i put them in the system tunable tab, it makes the changes but as soon as i reboot the machine it wont pick up the modified setting.  If i put them in /boot/loader.conf file it wont load it from there either when i reboot.

    Using 2.1.1-PRERELEASE (amd64)

  • try /boot/loader.conf.local instead of /boot/loader.conf



  • Didn't work either.  The only thing i can think of is that dummynet is getting loaded after the loader.conf file and reverting back to default values


  • Banned

    So what are you putting there? And what is shown by sysctl -a ?



  • Oh i should of said it sooner.  The ones i am changing are

    net.inet.ip.dummynet.pipe_byte_limit
    net.inet.ip.dummynet.hash_size

    i change the pipe size to 3145728 and the hash size to 1024, when i reboot the machine they always go back to default.
