I do have spinning HDD's and will be adding more as time goes by. Right now just a single 2TB drive. There are slots available for like almost a dozen 3.5/2.5 drives. Rsyslog.... hmmm never considered that path but gonna look at it now! Thx.

i like those details, CentOS 6 can not use the 'discard' trim option because it is only at 2.6.32, but 'discard' requires 2.6.35.  Then again, i should check the --changelog to see if it was backported.

rsyslog is already comes preinstalled in most distributions so logging does not have to wear out your ssd.
Alternatively, is their room to add a spinning platters hdd for logging.
