We are going to build a pretty large asterisk system.
- Dual quad Xeon 5410 processors
- Eight Gig Ram
- Two 500g drives with Raid 5 and one hot standby(3 drives in the array, 1 ready and waiting to rebuild the array if a drive fails)
- Dual 750W power supply
- DVD drive
We think we want to go with CentOS 5.2, Asterisk 1.6, and FreePBX GUI.
Would like to have SQL and also create a RAM drive for recordings.
I would like to ask everyone’s advice on the best practices we should follow for the system. e.g. Disk partioning, RAM drive size, SQL gotchas, is 8 Gig enough, etc.
This would be a great help for us before we start the project.
Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
