17. Server Operating System > Configurable OS Parameters

Configurable OS Parameters

Here we will go over optimum parameters for running a web server. Note that Unix systems are shipped with a generic kernel, optimized not for any particular use, but for acceptable performance for general use. See Chapter 15 for information on configuring TCP. You can see the current settings in a Solaris system by viewing /etc/system or grepping for ndd from inetinit. In general, Solaris 2.6 is already tuned for web serving, so you shouldn’t have to modify anything to get the best performance. Here are a few of the most basic parameters you may want to tune on Linux or another OS. Remember to back up your kernel and configuration files before changing anything.
