Filesystem layout of FSMG servers

Directories in /srv

  • /srv/mirror, webroot of https://mirror.fsmg.org.nz
  • /srv/website, webroot of https://fsmg.org.nz
  • /srv/stats, contains files used to generate https://mirror.fsmg.org.nz/.fsmg/nodes//, e.g. https://mirror.fsmg.org.nz/.fsmg/nodes/hlzmel/

Disk layout

The disks are in a RAID 10 configuration, and the partition layout on each disk is:

wlglam:/opt/fsmg/doc# sfdisk -d /dev/sda
label: gpt
label-id: A7663462-ABFD-41C5-A420-3FC879FBF82A
device: /dev/sda
unit: sectors

last-lba: 11721045134

If you use this dump to create a new disk be sure to change the volume names and remove the UUIDs.

Mountpoints:

wlglam:/opt/fsmg/doc# mount | grep wlglam
/dev/mapper/wlglam--system-root on / type ext4 (rw,noatime,errors=remount-ro,data=ordered)
/dev/mapper/wlglam--storage-mirror on /srv/mirror type xfs (rw,noatime,attr2,inode64,sunit=1024,swidth=4096,usrquota)

usrquota is used to keep quick track of how much disk space each mirror uses, as each mirror has its own user.
