Install Guide should include a some kind of table that outlines where local storage on servers is used

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.
This could be contained either within the Installation Guide > Prerequisites, or elsewhere in the Admin Guide, with a Link in the Prerequisites doc.
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.
