Somewhere in the net I found this:
echo 1024 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/neigh/default/gc_thresh1
echo 2048 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/neigh/default/gc_thresh2
echo 4096 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/neigh/default/gc_thresh3
Now do I just need to do that once? Do I need to reboot/restart interfaces after?
On reboot do I need to remind my system of this? Where would be the optimal place (debian system)?
