I'm planing to build a home server to act mainly as a uTorrent download and file server for me and the people I live with. I have come up with the following filesystem configuration and I would like some input about its suitability and also what filesystems would be appropriate. I plan to implement all of it via LVM so I can add HDDs when the prices come down again.
systemvg (16Gb SSD):
- rootlv (/)
datavg (500Gb HDD):
- homelv (/home)
- volatilelv (temp storage where files are automatically erased after 24 hrs)
The users home folders as well as the volatile and downloads partitions will be shared via Samba.
The only formats I have used are ext3/4 because I've only installed Ubuntu on desktop, what will be suitable in this case? I like the snapshot functionality of BTRFS so I can get a system up and running and revert back to in the case something goes wrong, although I'd need a separate /boot partition in this case. Any help would be greatly appreciated...
