I'm not sure, I would suggest you to go through release notes, the link 
I sent you is for the latest version which is 1.4, depending on the 
version of Riak you want to use or required to use different 
settings/tuning apply, go chronologically from 1st relevant version to 
last and see what applies to you and what have changed:

*Riak 1.2.1*:
*Riak 1.3.2:*
*Riak 1.4:*

The same applies for tuning doc, it is different per version, I guess 
you already figured out how to locate each.
