    Default Data Directory

    Doing a new installation.

    What is /opt/zimbra/data used for?

    How much disk space does it need?

    I read the documentation and the only directories I was worrying about are;

    /opt/zimbra/store, db, index and log,

    Thanks

    It's a bit like /var, IMO. It hold temp files and spool files for postfix.

    drwxrwxrwt 14 zimbra zimbra 4096 Aug 24 16:50 tmp/
    drwxr-xr-x 7 zimbra zimbra 4096 Aug 19 2011 amavisd/
    drwxr-xr-x 3 postfix zimbra 4096 Oct 10 2010 postfix/
    drwxr-xr-x 2 zimbra zimbra 4096 Oct 10 2010 altermime/
    drwxr-xr-x 2 zimbra zimbra 4096 Jun 7 2009 dspam/
    drwxr-xr-x 3 zimbra zimbra 4096 Jun 24 2008 clamav/

    Our is less than 10GB however we don't use amavisd, spam or clamav, and we don't spool postfix mail locally either.

    It also contains the LDAP databases (if your ZCS is uptodate and you have the LDAP service setup), mailboxd temporary folder (imap cache) and quite every temporary/spool folders for the MTA (amavis, altermime, cbpolicyd, etc).

    Code:
    drwxr-xr-x  2 zimbra  zimbra  4096 Jul 19 22:12 altermime
    drwxrwxr-x  8 zimbra  zimbra  4096 Aug 22 10:23 amavisd
    drwxr-xr-x  3 zimbra  zimbra  4096 Nov 22  2011 cbpolicyd
    drwxr-xr-x  3 zimbra  zimbra  4096 Mar 31  2008 clamav
    drwxr-xr-x  2 zimbra  zimbra  4096 Jul 19 22:12 dspam
    drwxr-xr-x  6 zimbra  zimbra  4096 Jul 19 22:12 ldap
    drwxr-xr-x  3 zimbra  zimbra  4096 Jul 31  2011 mailboxd
    drwxr-xr-x  4 postfix zimbra  4096 Jul 31  2011 postfix
    drwxrwxrwt 12 zimbra  zimbra 53248 Aug 26 17:28 tmp
    Space needed depends on the services you have on your ZCS server and the overall setup (incoming mails, number of users, IMAP access, etc).
