RE: Server Specifications and Architecture Question

G'day Kris,
With 1.1.x you can use your SAN for storage, provided you're on a server
OS (ie. anything other than Windows 95/98/ME) and provided you create
your repositories with the "fsfs" backend.
As for the server specs, my *gut feel* is that you won't have problems.
However none of the repositories I administer have both high activity
and a large number of contributors (although I administer different
repositories that have each of these things in isolation), so I have yet
to see Subversion under anything remotely resembling a heavy load (ie.
lots of activity from lots of concurrent users).

        Subject: Server Specifications and Architecture Question

        We are in the process of moving over to SVN and are trying to
figure out what type of infrastructure we should implement. Typically
we have around 6 projects ongoing with about 50 developers. There
doesn't seem to be a lot of sizing information available for SVN, which
brings me to my questions.


        Can SVN use our SAN for storage? (We are two weeks out from our
SAN being up, otherwise I would just try it...)


        If we use a box with the following specs and attach it to our
SAN, does anyone see any potential problems given number of

        1 x 2.4-GHZ Pent

        1GB mem

        Embedded ATA-100 IDE controller

        Embedded 10/100/1000GB NIC
