Subject:RAID or not?
View as plain text  
I am setting up a dedicated MySQL server with some pretty heavy usage.  I am 
not much of a sys admin (mostly a programmer).  I have some questions about 
the best drive configuration.

I have 4 SCSI drives currently.

I would like to have 1 drive run the OS,
1 drive to be the MySQL data directory
and 1 drive to be InnoDB (possibly raw partition).

What is the best way for me to configure RAID?

Here is the kind of load I am talking about:
