comment apache times out with low cpu and memory usage
As symcbean said, please provide more info. What OS? Is a DB involved? What are you using apache for? (Serving static pages? PHP? ...) Saying "it's slow, see" doen't provide enough information.

comment 3ware 9500S-4LP - Replacing faulty drive
I know the horse has left the barn, but it seems like your going to be starting from scratch, so I suggest going with raid5+hot spare or raid6. Raid10 is another option, but I would only use it where warrented.

comment 3ware 9500S-4LP - Replacing faulty drive
If you have a free drive bay, you should think about putting in a hot spare. That way if a drive fails, the raid card will automatically use it to replace the dead drive. This allows you to swap the dead drive with little impact on the system and your raid get's rebuilt faster.

comment 3ware 9500S-4LP - Replacing faulty drive
7 years is a long time for a drive in a production environment. I've heard of multiple cases (and had one myself) where once one drive fails the others closely follow. This is usually due to the extra load put on the old drives by the raid rebuild process.

comment 3ware 9500S-4LP - Replacing faulty drive
You can add larger drives with no problem. The raid card will only use what it needs. Raid5 with 3 drives can survive 1 failed drive. When you replace the failed drive, the card will use the data from other two drives to sync the replacement drive.

comment What's the best way to enforce a maximum size on a file directory?
Is there a reason you want to use a shell script instead of Perl or a similar language. The built in data types will make it easier.
