Manages permanent as well as runtime sysctl settings. Permament settings are set by managing entries in /etc/sysctl.conf. Runtime settings are set by directly calling the sysctl executable.
The value to set for the given key (object_id)
__sysctl net.ipv4.ip_forward --value 1 # On some operating systems, e.g. NetBSD, to prevent an error if the # MIB style name does not exist (e.g. optional kernel components), # name and value can be separated by `?=`. The same effect can be achieved # in cdist by appending a `?` to the key: __sysctl ddb.onpanic? --value -1
