Problem with large files

From: listman <listman_at_burble.net>

I've emailed every person who, on users@ has complained in the thread
about large file binary performance, and begged them to give me repos
and files i can reproduce with, promising to fix their speed issues.
I've even sent out the attached patch for testing

I'm still waiting for an answer. :-(

They seem to want solutions without having to test them.

The last time someone had a significant binary performance problem
with large files, I sent them the attached (which disables vdelta, and
as such, is only really a good idea on svndiff1 using repos and
networks with no 1.3 clients/servers).
Basically, tell anyone who wants to try that they should take this
patch and create a new repo with a patched subversion, and dump/load
the old repo into the new one, and give checkouts/etc a try.

The report from the one person who has ever tried it with large files
was that it sped up commit times from 45 minutes to less than 5 ;)


sorry for the delay (you did post over a weekend :)

i'll try to put some data together for you, i'll need to make something
myself as i (obviously) can't give you proprietary data
