Not really getting it how you use the access,
here is my configuration. My Repo is around 3 Gigs with 1800 revisions
running on a mac mini at home.
I usually access parts of the repo via svn+ssh to my machine
(the biggest project being 6000-10000 files, 200 meg or so, dont know it
The repo itself is hostet on a machine with direct hd access and the
access is very swift (definitely much faster than dumping files on
The only thing whic causes a significant slowdown is the artefacting of
files in the .svn dirs which NTFS cannot really handle,
but that is less a problem of subversion, I never really can recall
having a significant 5 minutes checkin delay on this configuration.
In my opinion as the others have statet the problems might be caused
by the network drive access.
However I have never dumped the entire 3 gig repo onto a single dir,
that might slow things down on the client to a crawl, but only on EXT3
and NTFS, which have not a B-Tree like cluster structure, like most
newer filesystems have (well EXT3 has it optionally)
With Reiser, HFS and any other goog filesystem things should be perfect
even at that size.
