RE: [vox-tech] Partitioning scheme

Striping the swap file will improve performance since it is writing to
multiple disks at the same time.  Creating a swap partition on a striped set
is done in the setup using druid on Red Hat.  I am using RAID 0 without
parity.  I am most interested in performance that fault tolerance.  I will
use a backup for mail and the web site.

		size of the swap partition is not a big deal.  it's easy to
create a "swap

for a server with

		i'm new to RAID stuff; does one take a performance hit
striping swap?
		is that even possible?
