My first 2 Cyrus servers had 800GB partitions on a SAN. However, that
turned out to be a little big in practice because it takes a long time to
backup 700-750GB of Cyrus mailboxes. The new servers that I am migrating
to now are using 500GB partitions. Currently, I have 2 per server, with 3
servers. The config looks like:
metapartition_files: index cache expunge squat
My plan is to add additional partitions if they fill up, but I might also
just add additional servers (these are running under VMWare).
