Section Number and Name:
02: System Requirements 

Describe the issue: 
When building more Pre-Production & Production level environments, customers often need to break down /var/ into various unique partitions/block devices/logical volumes in order to build a more sustainable environments. For example, a common breakdown of those partitions might look like:

However, there are other directories that have the potential to fill up and cause issues, and require maintenance.

Suggestions for improvement: 
We would like to have a table added that breaks down the directories written to by the various components of OpenShift, where they write to by default, a description of the types of data written (logs, app data, containers, etc.) and how to reconfigure them to write elsewhere where possible.

Additional information: 
This could be contained either within the Installation Guide > Prerequisites, or elsewhere in the Admin Guide, with a Link in the Prerequisites doc.
Comment 1 Vikram Goyal 2017-12-30 09:03:18 EST
The following information was added to the Scaling and Performance Guide which breaks down the different kinds of Storage: https://docs.openshift.com/container-platform/3.7/scaling_performance/optimizing_storage.html.

This was added for the 3.7 docs.

I am going to close this bug, but feel free to reopen if this information is not enough.
