Question Better use of single RAID 0 disk?


Hey all
I have a nice new HP DL380 file server (ooohhh aahhh) with 6 drives.
5 of them are 72gb (RAID 5) and 1 is a 36gb (RAID 0)

I have created my install and put / on the RAID 5 for its added redundancy
and left the 36gb drive as a RAID 0.
I am thinking of putting /tmp on the RAID 0 but before I do is there anything else or better that I should put in the RAID 0
ie swap, tmp, etc...

let me know
Thanks!

Can you make it a hot spare for your raid5? Imho that would be the best thing to do with it.

ah yeah, I didn't look at the drive sizes, I just assumed they were the same, my bad. Pretty much whatever you feel like doing with it unless you can replace it with a 72gb drive (then I'd go with the hot spare)
