AIX: How to manage network tuning parameters

The no command is used to configure network tuning parameters in IBM AIX. The no command sets or displays current or next boot values for network tuning parameters. This command can also make permanent changes or defer changes until the next reboot.

Syntax:
no [ -p -r ] { -o Tunable[=NewValue] }
no [ -p -r ] {-d Tunable }
no [ -p -r ] { -D }
no [ -p -r ] -a
no -h [ Tunable ]
no -L [ Tunable ]
no -x [ Tunable ]

where:
-a : displays current, reboot or permanent value for all tunable parameters
-d : resets Tunable its to default value
-D : resets all tunables to their default value
-h : displays help about Tunable parameter
-L : lists the characteristics of one or all Tunables
-o : displays the value or sets the Tunable to NewValue
-p : makes changes apply to both current and reboot values (I heard this option in many interviews)
-r : makes changes apply to reboot values (I heard this option in many interviews)
-x : lists characteristics of one or all tunables using spreadhset format

Example to set the value of tunable tcp_sendspace to 65536 permanently:
# no -p -o tcp_sendspace=65536

Example to set the value of tunable sb_max to 2097152 at next reboot:
# no -r -o sb_max=2097152

Example to display all values of tunables:
# no -a

Example to display all values of tunables at next reboot:
# no -r -a

Example to set the value of tunable tcp_sendspace to 65536:
# no -o tcp_sendspace=65536
