I plan to set up a big file server, something like motherboard with 4 ide
ports and an additional 4 ide daughter card, a PIV proc and 512 or 1024 MB
ram, a 100 or 1000 MB NIC, with 6 or 7 200 GB ide HDDs in a sigle box. I
don't need lightning performance, just disk space. Of course this would be
served by some linux os and samba
questions (relative to samba configuration and behaviour) :
- is there a better fs type (ext2, 3, xfs...) for this ?
- what about such space (1 TB at least), can i have only one fs for the
- what about huge files (over 2 GB)
- any suggestions (kernel releases and patches, samba performance tips...)
- * - * - * - * - * - * -
Bien sûr que je suis perfectionniste !
Mais ne pourrais-je pas l'être mieux ?
