List all Kernel Parameters

In every Kernel Patches, either sap changes some parameter or adds/remove a parameter. If we are planning to add a new parameter we have to first verify if the parameter is supported by KERNEL or not. OR we can check by going through its particular note.

To do this follow below step to check if the parameter is included in the KERNEL or not

sappfpar all          # will give list of all parameters

You can grep to check the parameter is supported in your KERNEL or not.

IDEALLY we should run sappfpar check after doing parameter changes, especially memory related parameters, but for planning for adding of new parameters we can use this step.
