What size/speed drives are you using for this?
What RAID protection are you using? Is RAID5 okay?
Some of my thoughts are:
Assuming Swap is on local disk, during the boot process there is a requirement for heavy reads, but after that there shouldn't be many reads or writes.
I'm thinking RAID5 (7+1) on 146GB 10K drives would be fine.
Thanks for your feedback.
