I'm making a KVM guest for a gentoo system to run my webserver which will be on a ssd drive. I am trying to make it small as possible. This will also be raw partition on LVM2. I will have the mysql database will go on a seperate kvm guest and i will network it to the webserver. I also will have rsyslog send the logs to the main KVM host(gentoo also).


How small can I make the webserver guest? it would contain php and probably just about 5 sites. do I still need to partition for a swap even though in all likely hood it will never get hit?

I would say skip the swap partition and add a swap file manually if needed. There's basically no performance difference.
