Question for the group,

I am running Solaris 2.6 and I need to find a resource for making sense of the ndd parameters (a display of ndd /dev/tcp returns about 60 parameters, and whether or not they are read only or read/write.

Does anyone know of a good resource for determining what each parameter does(some are intutive but others are not) and what ranges can be set to improve performance. I don not have a specific problem, and I am not planning, at this time, on changing any of them - this is more a search for information.

Thanks in advance.
