How to overcome the NFS limitation

From: Lukas Ruf <ruf_at_rawip.org>

Dear all,

is there any way to overcome the NFS problem for a repository?

My configuration:
- Linux 2.6.x Gateway for Web & SVN
- Sun Solaris 2.8 NFS server
- Heterogeneous clients (Win, Mac, Linux, Sun)

On the NFS server, no additional servers are allowed to be run.
Hence, I mount on the directories on the gateway. My gateway is
backed up only once per day. Our NFS server disposes of a nice RAID-5
file system that is exported to the Gateway. Since a plethora of
people are using the gateway, I would like to make use of the NFS
exported filesystem to minimize the risk of loosing data as much as

Has anybody had a similar problem -- and found a solution that works
as I wish it to work?

Please excuse my ignorance. I am switching from CVS to SVN only now:
I deal primarily with Linux kernel stuff: own patches have to be kept
in synch with different kernel versions (2.4.20 .. 25, 2.6.2 .. 3
etc.). If anyone has had to work with svn in a similar configuration
I would be more than happy if he or she could share his/her
experiences -- or help me finding appropriate links on the web....

Thanks in advance.
