Hi,

Disk space isnt an issue as such as I thin provision the VMWare guest anyway so 
I can be fairly generous, 200gb is easy....the thing that interests me is 
splitting up the table spaces to different disks sets for instance  (/dev/sdb1, 
/devsdc1 etc, etc). Later then I can change raid types or spread out to 
different LUNS if there is a performance bottleneck on the fly....that's easy 
to do if the "backend" is broken up to different partitions on initial build...

regards

Be careful to note that in the first document the disk space assumptions
are for 100 byte entries and some (but not all) of the IPA entries are
10x that.

Thanks for the links Sigbjorn.
