Am I right in thinking that everything Zimbra records, including logs from the various daemons it delegates tasks to, goes into /opt/zimbra? Does it not make use of anything else like /tmp?
I'm putting together a new setup (having played with my previous trial run in a VM on an old server, I'm putting together a fresh one of a beefier new box) and I'm trying to judge the size that things other than /opt should be. As I'm using LVM for the whole setup, resizing things later won't be a problem, but I'd prefer to get it right first .
Would this do as a starting point (the VM will initially have 1Gb RAM, this may increase later):I can extend /opt in future if that proves too small, but this installation is only ever going to be used by a small number of people with at most a couple of Gb of mail each. The VM's install will be based on Ubuntu/LTS and will run nothing but Zimbra and an small task collecting system/use health stats and storing them using RRDTool.Code:/ 2Gb
1Gb /opt 30Gb
