When setting up a new system, if I am planning on mirroring two hard drives, what should I do with the SWAP area? I can think of three things I can do...
- Do a mirror of the SWAP partition
- Stripe it for speed
- Create two separate SWAP partitions
I can see number 1 just seeming "normal" compared to the rest of the partitions, but does it need to be mirrored? Would the system break if the Stripe (option 2) died? Would the system use both SWAP partitions if I created two separate ones? What would be the ideal setup?
