Description Karel Zak 2006-11-28 16:59:29 EST
Please, see /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/init.ipv6-global.

There is used "sysctl -a | grep", although the sysctl command supports
selection. It means

  sysctl -a | grep "^net\.ipv6\.conf\."

could be replaced with:

  sysctl net.ipv6.conf

Why? See:

  # sysctl net.ipv6.conf | wc -l
  # sysctl -a | wc -l

To be honest, the way how this init script reads list of interfaces is *ugly*. 

  sysctl -a | grep "^net\.ipv6\.conf\." | awk -F. '{ print $4 }' | sort -u

should be replaced with:
  ls /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/

Here's what's going in 8.52-1. Cuts the time for showsysctl from 16 seconds to
a little over 1.
