28. Appendix H: Example II

The following is an example of a server setup in an academic setting, and is contributed by nakano (at) apm.seikei.ac.jp. I have only done minor editing to this section.

/var/spool/delegate is a directory for storing logs and cache files of an WWW proxy server program, "delegated". Since I don't notice it widely, there are 1000--1500 requests/day currently, and average disk usage is 15--30% with expiration of caches each day.

/mnt.archive is used for data files which are big and not frequently referenced such a s experimental data (especially graphic ones), various source archives, and Win95 backups (growing very fast...).

/mnt.root is backup root file system containing rescue utilities. A boot floppy is also prepared to boot with this partition.

Apparently /tmp and /var/tmp is too big. These directories shall be packed together into one partition when disk space shortage comes.

/mnt.lib is also seemed to be, but I plan to install newer TeX and ghostscript archives, so /usr/local/lib may grow about 100 MB or so (since we must use Japanese fonts!).

Whole system is backed up by Seagate Tapestore 8000 (Travan TR-4, 4G/8G).
