I am going to build a new home server shortly and quite interested in the idea of using a SSD to host the OS and Zimbra. Obviously I would not want a huge number of writes to take place on the SSD so what directories would need to be mounted on a standard HD ? This is how my current server looks
Code:
[root@office log]# df
Filesystem           1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00
                      38533760   8498848  28045896  24% /
/dev/xvda1              101086     27755     68112  29% /boot
tmpfs                  1572952         0   1572952   0% /dev/shm
/dev/shm                102400        40    102360   1% /opt/zimbra/data/amavisd/tmp
Would it really make much difference ? I guess it would depend on how often files from the SSD would be read or does Jetty hold most of them in cache anyway ?
