Help with very large repositories

From: Michael Muller <mmuller_at_enduden.com>

Hi all, I'm trying to import some very large RCS repositories into svn. I'm
starting with a 9200 file repository where cvs2svn identified 35000 revisions.
I'd like to build an 85000 file repository (the entire contents of my
company's RCS archives).

I was able to build a dumpfile for the 9200 file repo in about half an hour.
Importing it into svn has been taking days. I notice that the more revisions
I add, the longer it takes to add each revision. Can I expect that repository
operations after import will also take a long time with a repo of this size?
Is there anything we can do to improve performance and still have a single

I'm using subversion 1.2.1 with a BerkeleyDB FS. Any help will be greatly
