partition out /var


Hi
Here is my question:

You are the systems administrator of a mail server that services approximately 3,000 users. 2,000
users access their email via a POP-3 service, while the remaining 1,000 users access their email via a
Unix mail reader. Recently users have complained about speed of disk access, so a new 10 gigabyte
disk has been purchased for the mail server to go with the other 10 Gb disk already in place.
How would you partition out /var with these two separate 10 gigabyte disks? Note, these disks will
be on the same SCSI controller, but will not overload the SCSI bus in any way.

Homework?

I suggest you re-read the coursework to find what your lecturer intended.

Please post your thread in only one forum. Posting a single thread in the most relevant forum will make it easier for members to help you and will keep the discussion in one place. This thread should be closed because it is a duplicate of http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ng-var-682047/.
