Re: AW: Subclipse speeds

I work from home accessing our respoitory over a VPN on a DSL connection.
Our repository is several thousand files, over 1GB in size. Just checking in
a single, one-line change takes 5 minutes.
<br><br>However, I am running DB2 and WebSphere on a 3 Ghz machine with only
512MB of RAM. I have another GB of memory being delivered today, and I'm
hoping that will help. It will certainly help with compile time... :-)

speed this up but no luck. An interesting point <br>&gt;&gt;though, working
on a NFS mounted network drive is a lot faster !<br>&gt;&gt;I think I should
finally report this to the subversion developer <br>&gt;&gt;list, maybe they
can do something about that small size of each <br>&gt;&gt;read/write (only
512 bytes) ?<br>&gt;&gt;<br>&gt;Thanks Lars - at least I am not alone in
this :( - I will have to <br>&gt;approach this matter in a different way
then I think. Was trying to <br>&gt;avoid local development as some machines
aren't capable of running <br>&gt;the software I require(coldfusion mx7,6.1
&amp; 5). Maybe I should just <br>&gt;checkout files in the morning and then
have an automatic commit in <br>&gt;the
evening.<br>&gt;<br>&gt;Simon<br>&gt;<br>&gt;<br>&gt;---------------------------------------------------------------------<br>&gt;To
