[Pulp-list] MongoDB first start and preallocation

we are having issues with Katello installer and MongoDB. It seems this
database preallocates some data files upon the first start. It's an
issue for us, because it can take some time.


I filed a bug for this, but it seems it would be better idea to tune
mongodb settings and disable preallocating or manually preallocate the files. 
Folks from internet are doing this using "dd" utility.

What are your opinions about that? What you recommend for pulp
production setups?
