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

-> sqlite3 .svn/wc.db "select count (*) from nodes"
5242
-> sqlite3 .svn/wc.db "select count (*) from nodes where op_depth > 0"
0
-> sqlite3 .svn/wc.db "select count (*) from actual_node"
0

I ran the following command

for i in $(find . -type d | grep -v .svn); do ls -1 $i | wc -l; done | sort -n

The directory with the largest number of sub-stuff had 211 entries.

I see the opposite on an NFS disk: the single recursive call is 20s and the multiple non-recursive calls are 33s, so the single call is faster as expected. It's still 20x slower than a local disk but that will be because info is still using per-node sqlite transactions.

What do these command show:

$ sqlite3 .svn/wc.db "select count (*) from nodes"
$ sqlite3 .svn/wc.db "select count (*) from nodes where op_depth > 0"
$ sqlite3 .svn/wc.db "select count (*) from actual_node"

Does your working copy have "large" directories, i.e. a directory with a large number of immediate subdirs/files? (It should be possible to forumulate an SQL statement that tells me, but my SQL isn't good enough).
