RE: Really lousy performance with svn info --depth infinity

These operations do very different things. The first reads your working copy
to obtain a lot of details (unless you pass a revision; in that case it
looks at the repository)

The second asks the repository what files there are below the current
directory in the repository (using the revision of the current directory).

 

In my usage (repository hosted via http:// on the other side of the world)
the second is much slower. But if you have a local repository the opposite
might be true.

 

I think this question belongs on users{_AT_}subversion.apache.org though, as
it is about using Subversion and not on Subversion development.

Subject: Really lousy performance with svn info --depth infinity

 

Hi guys,

 

Quick question. I would expect the following 2 commands to perform
equivalent functions.

 

svn info -depth infinity

svn ls -depth infinity | xargs svn info

 

This issue is that the first command takes 1 minute to run while the second
command takes 6 seconds to run. I am running 1.7.0-rc2.
