I am setting up a Dell poweredge box with two 70 g hard drives.
The default LVM partition has one / with everything in it, and two
volume groups, one for each scsi drive. <br>
Since I havent put the machine in production yet, I am wondering if I
should manually reduce the one from 70 to about 40, and save off about
30 GB? This will be running one application, nothing else to
speak of, but I am a bit paranoid about log files filling up partitions
and the like, especially on a server running an app like this day in
and day out. I am also paranoid about having one big / <br>
Also I am wondering if mirroring is something I should even
consider. I don't think we need anywhere NEAR 140 gigs.
Maybe I could just make manual copies of certain files and leave them
on my 'extra' 30 GB partition. <br>
If anyone has a good general 'rules of thumb' type link or paper please share. <br>
