Re: Hardware Requirements for Subversion Setup.

My experience is that Subversion is fairly lightweight (protocol wise,
not feature wise) when compared to other version control systems like
ClearCase and even CVS. I've never used anything that big in running
Subversion, but in many of my jobs, I've been more than satisfied with
a older server with not a lot of memory and older (and slower) CPUs.

Remember that such CPU intensive operations on other version control
systems like creating a new branch or tag is a simple one shot deal on
Subversion. Even sending out a changelog is rather quick since
Subversion doesn't have to access thousands of files and do an
independent change log on each.

The biggest problem may simply be network bandwidth: How quickly can
Subversion push data (such as a change log or a list of files) through
the network.

There's an entry in the FAQ about this:
<http://subversion.tigris.org/faq.html#server-requirements> with
pointer to this conversation
<http://subversion.tigris.org/servlets/BrowseList?list=users&by=thread&from=330941>.
Not much there, just a single question and two replies. However, it
does match my experience: It doesn't take all that much for Subversion
to be happy.
