[TSVN] Check for Modifications Painfully Slow

From: Steve Strobel <steve_at_link-comm.com>

I am using TSVN to maintain a local personal repository so I can get
familiar with it before I recommend rolling it out to the rest of the
programmers in my group. I am just using a local fsfs (not BDB) file store
(url file:///C:/SVN_Repo_TCB2/trunk/tcb) rather than svnserve or apache
since I am the only one using it.

It seems to me that the "SVN Check for Modifications" command is painfully
slow on my system, and I want to know if my system is unreasonably slow or
whether its performance is in line with what others are seeing (commit and
other related commands are also slow). I just upgraded to TSVN 1.1.5 from
1.1.3 with no noticeable change.

My computer is a Dell 4300 1.5GHz P4 with the stock 40GB hard disk
formatted FAT32. A fresh checkout of my project takes about 9 minutes
(which I can live with) and reports that it checked out 4422 files. That
directory tree (including the .svn directories) totals about
587MB. Checking for modifications on that newly-created directory takes
about 35 seconds (which hurts a little but is tolerable). After making a
branch or two, merging some stuff, compiling the source files, etc,
checking for modifications takes about 4.5 minutes. I am not patient
enough to wait for that too many times in a day.

Is 35 seconds a typical time after a fresh checkout? Should I expect it to
slow down as I make changes to a WC? Are their plans to improve the
performance? Would running svnserve improve performance relative to
accessing the local repository through the file:/// url? I realize that
the issues might be in the svn client library, but since I don't have the
command line interface installed to compare with, I thought I would ask
here first.

Thanks for any help you can give me,
