Anyone have experience running news with RAID spools?
I'm moving my news server from an underpowered Sparc 10 to a new Ultra
with lots of RAID disk. For news, is it better to build multiple small
partitions for the spool (as is the only available case when using
quad-packs and other non-RAID disk technologies), or is it better to build
a single large partition of say 16GB for the spool? Or does it matter one
way or the other?
