Hi,
Here is the information I see, I don't know what means which partition etc.  My server RAM is 72 GB.  Should the swap be 16 GB?

File system info is as under with file system sizes at the end in GBs.

Oracle home for binaries and logs            10
Oracle system table space            15
Oracle user data table space            30
Oracle user index table space            30
Oracle custom user table space            5
Oracle Redo Log            5
Oracle Archive logs            15
Oracle local exports            10


I don't understand which partition actually means what.  For example is "Oracle user data table space" actually /usr   OR what?

1. Tablespaces are logical storage unit. To get the physical location i.e. datafile information. Login into server using SQL plus and run query


SQL> set linesize 230
SQL> col file_name format a75
SQL> col tablespace_name format a30
SQL>  select tablespace_name, file_name from dba_data_files

2. Redo log files
SQL> col MEMBER format a50
SQL>select * from v$logfile

3. Oracle Archive logs
SQL> show parameter log_archive_dest_1

4. Oracle home for binaries and logs
$ echo $ORACLE_HOME
if you cannot find it. check Oracle home in /etc/oratab or /var/oratab

5. Oracle local exports
If you are using datapump, then look for directory.
SQL> col DIRECTORY_PATH format a75
SQL> select directory_name, directory_path from dba_directories
