http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hey guys I got one of those SSD Drives recently and planned to install F12 on it to see how it parses against normal HDDs in daily use. On Wikipedia I read that SSD Drives outperform any HDD, even Raid0 Raptors, in reading but not writing. The random access time is also win. I was a bit worried when I heard that the SSD can read forever but dies pretty quick if under excessive write access i.e. logfiles. Would it be a wise choice to put /var/log not on a SSD and if so what other folders should not be mounted on it ? Using the noatime mount option in fstab is probably a must for it too. I got not much experience with mass storage other then HDDs so any advice is very welcome ;) (HowTos)
