Best Practices: Performance on Large Repositories?

From: Steve Seremeth <subversion_at_seremeth.com>

Hello -

We have a repository of about 11000 files totalling about 1200 MB. A
commit or a status done at the trunk dir level takes as much as 30
minutes whether using the svn command line (Windows XP or AIX) or
Tortoise -- and seems to use very little CPU. Also, the server (RH ES 3
on 2.4 Ghz Xeon using apache/berkeley db) just idles most of the time
and seems to be doing nothing during any of these actions.

What is the best way to improve performance? Since the server is idling
I'm assuming it's not a software problem on the repository server. Are
there benchmarks somewhere that we can look at to see how far off our
setup is or is there anything we can do to semi-officially test
performance against known good data?

We end up doing a lot of "time svn commit trunk".

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. If we're doing something
wrong, that would be welcome news. If we are not doing something wrong,
perhaps relative performance information should be posted in the FAQ?

TIA -

Steve

P.S. I know we would be doing better if we were working on smaller
pieces of the repository at any one time. No one interested in "cvs
modules"-style functionality?
