I'm responsible for setting up a new CentOS 7 server. It's my first time so I want to make sure I'm on the right track. After some research, I chose to have 6 partitions:
Partition | Type | Device Type | Mounted at 1 | ext4 | VLM | / 2 | ext4 | Standard Partition | /boot 3 | ext4 | VLM | /home 4 | ext4 | VLM | /var 5 | ext4 | VLM | /usr 6 | ext4 | VLM | /swap
In fact, the capacity is what I'm not sure of: (HDD: 1 TB)
/ 60 GB /boot 1GB /home 800GB /var 20GB (since /var holds logs and databases) /usr 20GB /swap 2*RAM = 2*8 = 16GB 100 GB not allocated
I'm most concern about
/var size, since I have no idea how big the database will be, I'm not sure how can I tell how much I should set it.
