Services.conf is the file used to set certain parameters and variables, particularly limits and startup settings that are global to services.
A services.conf configuration file is viewed by services as a series of directives to be executed as the file is being read, and each line is a single directive.
A directive which takes a single line consists of a special word that services knows to represent a certain kind of directive, followed by a colon, and then a parameter for the directive.
Any line beginning with a ``#'' symbol is instead read as a comment (or annotation) and is ignored by services. This can also be used to comment out or temporarily disable a directive.
Some directives are completely optional, whereas others must be invoked at least once in order for services to start up properly. What follows is a description of each directive.
