Re: Re: Repository over Raid?

Fair enough on the backup after each commit. I guess my little world (all 6 of us) do so little that I set a cron job to do a hot backup of the repository twice a day. That seems to work for us. <knock on wood>

So as far as the sizes of the backups, as long as you are using FS rather than BDB, you should be fine. BDB stores pretty much everything in one large file. That would get yucky. But I think (based on the size of your repository) I would recommend FS anyway. I'm not a fan of BDB that large.
