Does Linux have tunable parameters like Sco Unix. If yes, where can i have information about that.

What i means by tunable parameters is maximum of file open by a process, maximum file lock by a process etc.

There should be a file called "/etc/security/limits.conf" on
your system. The comments in there should provide you with
some nice info. Here is a little cut & paste:

#        - core - limits the core file size (KB)
#        - data - max data size (KB)
#        - fsize - maximum filesize (KB)
#        - memlock - max locked-in-memory address space (KB)
#        - nofile - max number of open files
#        - rss - max resident set size (KB)
#        - stack - max stack size (KB)
#        - cpu - max CPU time (MIN)
#        - nproc - max number of processes
#        - as - address space limit
#        - maxlogins - max number of logins for this user

Good luck.
