Minor correction... I posted the info about my database uses in another
thread on this list, not this thread. I did neglect to reiterate what uses I
had for the DB server when I started this thread to ask for specifics on
RAID-5 vs RAID-10. Sorry 'bout that.
We have mysql databases for spamassassin bayesian rules, hore3/imp web mail,
and drupal. We also have a small departmental database updated via my own
PS: Before you suggest it, I also asked about this on the mysql list. But I
think the vast majority of people on that list are primarily DB experts and
don't know much about hardware. I'd rather not have to become an expert on
mysql optimization but I guess I'll have to.
