Bad feedback is the best feedback

Hi, I noticed that Digitalocean adds these lines to /etc/sysctl.conf every time a droplet is created:

Digital Ocean Recommended Settings:

net.core.wmem_max=12582912 net.core.rmem_max=12582912 net.ipv4.tcp_rmem= 10240 87380 12582912 net.ipv4.tcp_wmem= 10240 87380 12582912

But there’s a bug which adds these lines to droplets which are created from snapshots as well, this results in multiple entries for same setting, in my case, I already tuned these settings. I think its okay to add these lines, but commented out. Furthermore, you should consider snapshots as perfectly crafted piece of backups, and try NOT to modify any file in case of snapshots.

I’ve brought this again to our engineering team’s attention – we will get it fixed soon. <br>Meanwhile, you can either remove the duplicate entries manually or just ignore it as it won’t cause any issues.

Hello, what’s the status of this issue?
