Question What file system needs the best performance?


Besides swap, for a stand alone workstation for starting up applications, what partitions need the fastest performance?

All of them help, but for app startup I guess / or /usr or /usr/bin but it depends on how you have your partitions set up... (whether you have just swap / and /home or whether you have swap /boot / /usr /home /var or whatever)

Basically I have a new motherboard that has onboard raid for sata... it also has 64/66 pci that I'll be using 2 scsi drives for... along with ATA.

I'm looking for an optimal combo for things like decreasing boot time and application launch times.

The raid 0 sata will be the fastest... then the scsi (2 drives) then the ATA.... a total of 1 + 2 + 2 drives.

All will have their own channel.

So I'm looking for a partitioning scheme that will increase daily performance.

Swap will not be an issue because I will have more than 2gigs worth or ram.

Hope that clears things up a bit.
