Question about the random file

I'm currently using EAP-TLS with 3072 bit RSA certificates and a 3072 bit DH
paramters. Currently I'm using the random file produced by the bootstrap
script which appears to take 10 bytes of data from /dev/urandom. Is this
sufficient with the larger keysize I am using? In addition, many howtos
suggest using /dev/urandom directly. Is this a good idea?
