I think Harvest (Squid?) has a different I/O chacteristic
than a typical newserver setup. I believe for newserver, a
huge RAID array will be useful to hookup several disks
into a large disk array. But for Harvest, it might be better
to use small disk, one swap_dir for each disk.

How do you configure your disks ?

Correct me if I am wrong, difficult to span news directories
over several disks without RAD

Would love to try this. But my environment (ISP) doesn't seem
to allow that.

IWe are considering doing such on a international scale
much like NLNAR.
