DESCRIPTIONThe sysctl Cm net.inet.tcp.syncookies policy module implements a process partition policy, which allows administrators to place running processes into ``partitions'' based on their numeric process partition (specified in the process's MAC label). Processes with a specified partition can only see processes that are in the same partition. If no partition is specified for a process, it can see all other processes in the system (subject to other MAC policy restrictions not defined in this man page). No provisions for placing processes into multiple partitions are available.
Label FormatPartition labels take on the following format:
partition / value
Where value can be any integer value or ``none '' For example:
partition/1 partition/20 partition/none
