tagging performance issues

Hi Folks,

 

I have been investigating on using subversion for our source code
control needs. We have a huge user base (700+ users) and we allow the
users to apply many tags and branches. One of the prime motivations for
investigating subversion is the faster tagging mechanism. The tagging
mechanism is fast in the beginning; however the tagging speed decreases
as I increase the number of tags. Once I reach around 10000 tags, it
takes 16 seconds to apply a tag where as it takes < 1 second to apply
the first tag. I used the following command to apply the tag.

 

svn copy URL URL

 

 

As we may end up in having 200000 or more tags and branches, the tagging
time might be 5 mins. This is highly unacceptable for us. Did any one
ever notice this problem? Is there a way to improve the tagging speed.
The reduced performance on tagging also effects commands like "svn mkdir
URL". I however did not notice any affect on commands like commit.

 

Any help would be appreciated.
