       create_fastlinks - configure the system to use fast symbolic links

       Specify integer value.

       When is nonzero, it causes the system to create HFS symbolic links in a
       manner that reduces the number of disk-block accesses by one  for  each
       symbolic	 link in a path name lookup.  This involves a slight change in
       the HFS disk format, which makes any disk formatted for	fast  symbolic
       links  unusable	on  Series  700 systems prior to HP-UX Release 9.0 and
       Series 800 systems prior	 to  HP-UX  Release  10.0  (this  configurable
       parameter  was  present	on  Series 700 Release 9.0 systems, but not on
       Series 800 HP-UX 9.0 systems).

       To provide backward compatibility, the default  setting	for  is	 zero,
       which  does  not	 create	 the newer, faster format.  However, all HP-UX
       10.0 kernels (and all Series 700 HP-UX  9.0  kernels)  understand  both
       disk formats, whether "create_fastlinks" is set to zero or non-zero.

       All HP-UX kernel tunable parameters are release specific.  This parame‐
       ter may be removed or have its meaning changed in  future  releases  of

       Installation of optional kernel software, from HP or other vendors, may
       cause changes to tunable parameter values.   After  installation,  some
       tunable	parameters may no longer be at the default or recommended val‐
       ues.  For information about the effects of installation on tunable val‐
       ues, consult the documentation for the kernel software being installed.
