Are you asking about the kernel config file? If so just download a redhat kernel rpm, unpack it and have a look.

Actually, you asked specifically about redhat: RHEL.

Can you please specify what you mean by "Kernel Paramtre" (sic)?

If you want to see anything "default" about the kernel, download the source from kernel.org.

What do you mean by "why we tune them up?"? Who is "we"?

All I want to know is "We do setup Kernel parameter through /etc/sysctl.conf?
What default parameter we need to setup?

Default parameters are just that. If you change them they won't be default any more.

If your kernel is doing what you want it to do you don't need to change anything. If it is not, for example you want to turn ipv4 forwarding you can.
