Where are "observable" paths like
/home/ubuntu/foo.txt stored on a Linux EC2 instance with mounted EBS?
I have a basic EC2 instance with added EBS storage, mounted as
/mnt/my-data following one of the AWS tutorials. Is everything that I don't put at
/mnt/my-data/... stored on the small 8GB block that comes with the EC2 instance itself?
The reason I ask is that I installed quite a few Python libraries that take up some space (numpy, etc.) as well as mongodb. The installations themselves shouldn't be a problem, and everything is working. But once mongodb starts storing the data I'm wanting, I really need for the database itself to be on the big partition, and I'm assuming it's not the way I have it set up (using defaults for everything).
It would also be nice to be sure my log files go to the big partition rather than the small one.
Or is the situation simply this: Everything at root (
/mnt/my-data is on the small virtual disk. Everything that should go on the large EBS volume needs to be put in
