    Recommended server partitioning

    Hi guys,

    I am reinstalling my server and I am going to partition as follows:

    primary ext3 /boot 1 2000 MB
    primary ext3 / 1 740000 MB
    primary swap none - 2 x 8000 MB

    Would this be optimum performance, or would you suggest adjustments?

    If you have single HDD then there is no relation with performance and partition creation. You can allocate the size based on your requirement.

    it will be easy to manage if you give separate partitions for

    /
    /home
    /usr
    /var
    /tmp

    One advantage to having multiple partitions is if you end up having to FSCK a partition there will be less data on it then if you have all of / on it.
