Big repository problem - maybe issue 773 - how to solve

From: Volker Voßkämper <volker.vosskaemper_at_cenote.de>

first my configuration:

 - Athlon 600 with 750MB Memory
 - SuSE 8.0
 - expat-1.95.2-126 (SuSE)
 - Apache 2.0.46 from the tar.gz
 - subversion 0.23 from the tags/0.23

 - P4 Mobile with 500MB Memory
 - XP SP1
 - subversion 0.23.0 (r5962)

My sources are primarily binary files (Oracle Forms and Reports).
The complete tree without versioning are ~3000 files in 56 directories
all in all 285 MB.
The repositoriy size is now 418MB (db/strings 412MB)

The most common problems are timeouts on the client (most on "svn up" or
"svn st -u")
as a result of heavy memory using on the server (top shows 1.3G for httpd).
Sometimes the server is no more responding to any service - sometimes I
reboot after 10 min although
the disk LED ist blinking, but no way...
A checkout mostly fails but I can change then in the new workdir and
make a svn up - that works
(exept the server hangs again ;-))

I read some issues and found that the one with # 773 seems to match for
my problems.
There is a comment from Phillip Martin 2003-05-30 05:37 PDT that
describes a drastic reduce
of the memory usage.

Thats what I need!! Can someone give me a combination of svn revision
and apache release
that will work well for a while especially in conjunction with the
windows client 0.23.0 (r5962).

I'm no C programmer and I'm not firm with CVS! So please give exact
instructions how to get the
correct version of apache.

many thanx in advance
