When SmarterMail starts it needs to read the following files for each domain:
But these files are in the domains folder.
My suggestion is simple: Allow these files can be placed in another path, so that we can use SSDs for these files and start the SmarterMail in less than 2 minutes even when it has thousands of domains. Today our SmarterMail take more than 15 minutes to start with 10K SAS drives and 3000 domains.
The architecture that I recommend would be like this:
SSDs for: OS, Index, Spool and the new folder for config files listed above.
SAS 10K disks for: other files.
