Re: [HTCondor-users] why does htcondor change sysctl params, and why is this done outside of /etc/sysctl.{d, conf} ?

What monitoring are you using, so I can avoid it?  ;-)

ls -d /proc/[1-9]*

I do agree with you, however, that /etc/sysctl.d/htcondor.conf would be beneficial - it could be the reason it's not done that way now is that HTCondor predates the /etc/sysctl.d directory. Also, if it sets something at startup perhaps it should revert it to the original value at shutdown.
