Disk layout for Zabbix server

If you are using my script to install Zabbix, and don’t intend to add anything else to the Zabbix server, then you can partition your disk as follows:

Disk Partition Disk Space
/boot> 500 meg
/ 5 gig
swap 2x memory (ie.  if 1 gig memory, then 2 gig)
/var all remaining disk space

Generally I don’t like having data on the root partition, so I put it in /var instead.  This has worked pretty well for me in my installations.
