Doc: "Linux Settings for High Load Systems" are still valid?
the are some configs for high load systems
fs.file-max = 360000 net.ipv4.ip_local_port_range = 1024 65000 net.ipv4.tcp_keepalive_time = 60 net.ipv4.tcp_keepalive_probes = 3 net.ipv4.tcp_keepalive_intvl = 90
are still this values valid also with the latest kernels? For example on an Ubuntu 14.04 - 3.13.0-143-generic on a machine with 16GB of RAM the defaults values are:
fs.file-max = 1555280 net.ipv4.ip_local_port_range = 32768 61000 net.ipv4.tcp_keepalive_time = 7200 net.ipv4.tcp_keepalive_probes = 9 net.ipv4.tcp_keepalive_intvl = 75
so for the file-max I have kept the default, ok for ip_local_port_range, for the keepalive this values are still suggested?

fs.file-max (as well as other settings) are suggested but should always be adjusted to particular needs. However if the defaults are higher then I would leave them as is.
keepalive is related to detecting broken network sockets so if you require faster detection lowering those values may be needed.
