This is informative, and I'll use it because my 12 machine home network 
is all ipv4, but its for only one option. Doing "sysctl -a|wc -l" gets 
me 829 such options to set.  So where can I find the real, complete, 
list of options AND the effect of changing each one?

googling around may accidentally get you this info for 2 or 3 such lines 
you can put in your /etc/sysctl.conf, but where is the full, wonderfully 
verbose list that explains them all?

Thank you.
