FreeBSD + Disk speed
I got IDE disk (160G) and SATA150(250G) disk
FreeBSD is on SATA disk
Torrents are downloaded to SATA disk
Files are archived on IDE disk...
I'm wondering if this setup would be better in terms of performance:
FreeBSD on IDE
Files archived on IDE
Torrents are downloaded to SATA
/usr/ports on SATA (optional)
/usr/src on SATA (optional)
/tmp on SATA (optional)
I use my pc for desktop.
I download torrents a lot (at high speed)...
and i think once FreeBSD is loaded disk usage for it is very minimal
That;s why i'm thinking if putting FreeBSD on slower disk, and running most things that needs speed on faster disk would increase performance...
Bough disks are and will be encrypted
