Innocent bystander's question, before 1.8 starts to be cast in stone:
If we want to make serf happen for 1.8, shouldn't we (as a community)
I think we need some kind of community decision whether or not we'll
FWIW: I personally think serf brings noticeable (performance)
-- Johan  http://subversion.apache.org/docs/release-notes/1.7.html#serf  On a Solaris build machine @work (Solaris 10 on x86 on ESX, with 1.6.17 client, 1.5.4 server (sorry, old stuff)), most interactions with the svn server are a lot faster when using serf than with neon. Things like ls, cat, log, mergeinfo, ... are all a lot faster (like 150ms vs. 900ms). Unfortunately, I can't use serf in general, because checkouts and updates crash sometimes (yeah, I need to investigate more, and report those ... first need to reproduce with a 1.7 client ...). So in my scripts I sprinkle "config-options servers:global:http-library=serf" for all svn commands that I know will not crash (basically anything except checkout, export and update). That made our buildscripts a lot faster on this machine. I don't know the reason for this perf difference, I don't see it on our Windows clients, nor on a physical Solaris 10 sparc machine. Maybe something to do with TCPIP parameters, network stack, actual connectivity (they're all on the same LAN though) ... for some reason neon is very expensive on this machine ...Received on 2012-05-02 16:26:13 CEST
