Re: raid 5 partition table example
hi ya matt...
you can see an example raid5 config files..
/etc/raid5.conf or /etc/raidtab
if oyu are using 3 drives .... is one oyur system drive ???
and 2 data drives ???
- if you plan to use 3 drives for / ( root )... than
you are asking for some serious/additional "support issues"
typical partitions should look like...
64mb / small as possible/reasonable
128mb /tmp small for just tmp files
512Mb /var for logs and email and http stats ???
1024Mb /usr for system files
2xRAM swap 2x memory up to about 512M swap...
rest of disk for /opt or /home...
( at least i sorta like this partition scheme within
( its restrictions and limiations
if you combine /dev/hda and /dev/hdb and /dev/hdc....
it should still only grow "rest of disk"
and the 64mb for / is spread across 3 drives...
if you really want to spread / across 3 drives... youneed
to read the "root-raid" howto
http://www.linux-consulting.com/Raid --> lots of docs ???
