For performance, I have always set 'noatime' on my
large data partitions.

For some odd reason I never bothered to set it on /
and /var ... is there any reason not to do that ?

I know it won't change much since they are not busy
filesystems, but if there is no risk and no "best
practices" reason _not_ to do it, I might as well...

right ?
