Here is a typical filesystem setup on a Columbus Conductor server:

a. / 100GB
b. /tmp 50GB
c. /opt 8GB
d. /srv 8GB
e. /usr 100GB
f. /var 100GB

The important filesystems here are /var (where the database tables live) and /tmp (which is used to cache import data for certain import methods). If either of these locations become saturated then the Columbus database will encounter problems.

The system must also have at least 64GB of swap space.
