RHEL 4 fresh installation: Mount points and partition sizes?
Posted on 2006-11-01
I have a new Dell server which will house RHEL4. The installation CD suggests the following partion and mount structrue (all values in MB)
/ = 1024
/boot = 100
swap = 1756
/usr = 24346
/home = 13533
/tmp = 512
/var = 512
Now this totals only 41783MB (or 41.7GB). My hard drive is 75GB. Why is this the recomended/default sizes? Only 1024MB for / is EXTREMELY small, isnt it? We have two applications that will be running on this server: inventory system, accounting system. All data for these two applications will sit on a DAS (directly attached storage) system which has approx 200GB of space. Everything else will sit on this server's local 75GB hard drive.
Are there any other recommendations for partion sizes to make the most use out of my 75GB? I have found very vauge documentation on the web for this.
