initscript



SYNOPSIS

       /bin/sh /etc/initscript id runlevels action process


DESCRIPTION

       When  the  shell  script  /etc/initscript is present, init
       will use it to execute the commands  from  inittab.   This
       script  can  be  used  to set things like ulimit and umask
       default values for every process.


EXAMPLES

       This is a sample initscript, which might be  installed  on
       your system as /etc/initscript.sample.

              #
              # initscript   Executed by init(8) for every program it
              #              wants to spawn like this:
              #
              #              /bin/sh /etc/initscript <id> <level> <action> <process>
              #

                # Set umask to safe level, and enable core dumps.
                umask 022
                ulimit -c 2097151
                PATH=/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin
                export PATH

                # Increase the hard filedescriptor limit for all processes
                # to 8192.  The soft limit is still 1024, but any unpriviliged
                # process can increase it's soft limit up to the hardlimit
                # with "ulimit -Sn xxx" (needs a 2.2.13 or later Linux kernel).
                ulimit -Hn 8192

                # Execute the program.
                eval exec "$4"


FILES
