    Hello everyone,

    In a production server with 8 TB HDD Space.

    What is recommended partitioning layout to avoid inodes limits in case of 3K accounts with 300K inode limit per account?

    Should I go with simple specify the number of inodes in "/" partition.
    Or use multiple partitions like one suggested below :

    Code:
            /                         20G
            /boot                     1G
            /usr                      64G  
            /var                      200G (logs, others)
            /var/lib/mysql            3T (MySQL files)
            /home                     1.4T
            /home2                    1.4T
            /home3                    1.4T
            swap                      32G
            /backup                   500G
            /tmp                      20G
    

    Any thought are welcome.

    Also how about LVM

    Hello :)

    It's likely a good idea to utilize the single root partition (other than /backup) if you want to avoid /var/ or /usr filling up.

    Thank you.
