So, my university advisor assigned me to setup a deep-learning workstation in our laboratory to do some research. But it's my first contact with linux and system administration and I'm feeling a bit lost in some aspects of the installation. One of they is about mount options for each volume.
I'm using LVM to manage the disks (the server have a 480GB SSD and a 6TB HD), it seems that the SSD have plenty of space for all the software and libraries that we gonna use (CUDA, cuDNN, Keras, Tensorflow, etc), but during the LVM configuration of disk partitions, there is some mount options that I can select, like discard, noatime, nodiratime, relatime, usrquota, grpquota, etc.
I already did plenty of research on stack overflow, quora and etc, but I couldn't find any useful information for my case about which options to select.
The idea for the workstation is that everyone from our lab (about 15 students) could use it for processing deep-learning models inside a virtual environment (python).
Ubuntu Server 16.04
CPU: Intel Xeon E5-2620 2,10GHz
64GB of RAM (DDR4)
GPU: 3x Titan X Ultimate Pascal (2016) 12GB
What I'm asking here is some advice about the mount options for the logical volumes (I only created two - root [360GB] and swap [16GB] - inside the SSD) and some suggestions about system administration of deep-learning workstations, from your experiences with this type of setup.
