create linux partitions on 80GB HD DNS / Proxy internal server ?


hi

I setup internal DNS / Proxy server on 80GB Harddisk
for ca. 300 user based on linux SUSE 8.2

I've created partitions:

/swap 2GB
/boot 37MB ext2 ( free 70% )
/ 34GB ext3 ( free 90% )
/usr 14GB ext3 ( free 80% )
/srv 2GB ext3 ( free 90% )
/var 4,9GB ext3 ( free 60% )
/home 2GB ext3 ( free 80% )
/tmp 2,4GB ext3 ( free 90% )
shmfs 124MB ( free 100% )
and I'm NOT using LVM.

ist it OK ?

or /boot /var /tmp are to small ?

can be /boot more largely with the time
or is it OK ?

what is shmfs ?
can I use this space for other partitions ?

kind regards
cccc

It all looks fine
i would make /boot 100 megs
/usr doesn't need as much as you are giving it
probably only 6 gigs
make a new mount point for the cache for the proxy server

thanks

you mean the new mount point for
/var/cache/squid ?

for example /usr/cache/squid
instead of /var/cache/squid ?

only this folder from squid needs so much space ?

kind regards

i guess you dont have to worry about the cache
when you install the proxy server you can make a symlink to to / directory because that has a lot of space.

if it gives you an option to change the directory for the cache in squid than yes thats what you need to do.
but if it doesn't then you need to create a symlink but i think it will let you change the cache folder make sure the permissions are right if you do change it.
