Yeah, I guess this is something I should do when we have a downtime
window. The only performance problem I've noticed is that things get
pretty sluggish when I unplug half of the power feed to the SAN (we were
doing a power upgrade in our data center). The write cache is disabled in
this situation and things got really bad for a while. :)
Increasing the size of the journal may have helped during that time, but
who knows. In general, I think an IMAP server does more reads than
writes, but every little bit helps!
