      * Defining a `sysctl` value for a setting with slash in the name, for example for bond devices, in the `profile` field of a `Tuned` resource might not work. Values with a slash in the `sysctl` option name do not map correctly to the `/proc` filesystem. As a workaround, create a `MachineConfig` resource that places a configuration file with the required values to the `/etc/sysctl.d` node directory.(link:https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-3707[*RHEL-3707*]

      Setting sysctl variable with / in the name fails with tuned profile:

      [sysctl]
      net.ipv4.conf.bond0/355.forwarding=1
      

      Results in next error:

      2023-09-12 07:41:30,539 ERROR    tuned.plugins.plugin_sysctl: Failed to read sysctl parameter 'net.ipv4.conf.bond0/355.forwarding', the parameter does not exist
      2023-09-12 07:41:30,539 ERROR    tuned.plugins.plugin_sysctl: sysctl option net.ipv4.conf.bond0/355.forwarding will not be set, failed to read the original value.
      2023-09-12 07:41:30,539 INFO     tuned.plugins.plugin_sysctl: reapplying system sysctl
       

      The variable itself exists:

      sysctl net.ipv4.conf.bond0/355.forwarding
      net.ipv4.conf.bond0/355.forwarding = 0
      

      This happens on Red Hat Enterprise Linux CoreOS release 4.14
