comment Apache extremely slow - ok after reboot
I don't have any experience with clamav, but I am curious to know what happens if you killed off the process when it starts slowing down. I've also seen outdated firmware on the HD itself cause unreasonble (and unexplainable) slowness on a machine.

The words "Enterprise SSD" goes a long way in these situtions.

comment Linux file/storage server to be used in windows environment
I'll second @MDMarra, there's a definite performance hit when using SAMBA. Not so much with single file throughput, but querying with multiple files is where SAMBA is at it's worse.

As a side note, BEWARE OF LOOPS! Can kill a network in seconds.

comment I've inherited a rat's nest of cabling. What now?
We finally did as of last week. Forgot that we actually do have "scheduled down-time" procedures for the rest of employees to operate under. We used an approach similar to Jak's answer, meticulously documenting EVERYTHING. We had a few switches that needed replacing for compliance reasons, so we took advantage of the upgrade to get the switches much, much closer to the patch pannel. Now, 90% of the patch cables are under 2' while consolidating a number of the smaller switches. Took 3 of us 4 hours to get it completed with everything back up and running. Still, not as nice as ewwhite's pic!

comment Convert single O/S disk to RAID 1 - Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
I know this isn't exactly the solution your looking for, but I don't see any reason why you couldn't clone your bare metal OS to a VM where the VM host is freshly installed on a RAID 1. Not only would you get the benefits of a RAID setup, but you also get all the benefits of a VM like state-saving and image cloning.... just an idea.

@TheCleaner Thx! I forgot that could be done. Every little bit helps.
