What to put on SSD
I have this:
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda1 37G 14G 22G 39% /
tmpfs 3.9G 8.0K 3.9G 1% /lib/init/rw
udev 10M 640K 9.4M 7% /dev
tmpfs 3.9G 0 3.9G 0% /dev/shm
/dev/hda2 328G 204G 107G 66% /home
tmpfs 3.9G 49M 3.8G 2% /tmp
tmpfs 3.9G 0 3.9G 0% /var/lock
tmpfs 3.9G 296K 3.9G 1% /var/run
tmpfs 3.9G 32K 3.9G 1% /var/tmp
/dev/sdb1 917G 289G 582G 34% /root/backup
So basically I have root and home partitions and another disk
for backups of the whole thing.
Now I got a SSD disk, about which I don't really know much.
It's a 160 GB Intel, so it should be quite ok.
The question now is how to best utilize it in my configuration?
Or if I should just find other use for that?
I'm thinking for copying the whole root to SSD. Maybe have
40 GB partition for root and the rest for home. I have more stuff on
my home partition, but the active stuff is much less. So daily
used files would be on SSD and archive stuff on hard disk.
Should I worry about the longetivity of SSD? Maybe set noatime option,
but do I really need to deal with other filesystems than ext3? What about
/var/log and other places where there are lots of writing going on?
