Hi,

I'm having similar problems myself.

The worst part is that since our Symantec Enterprise Firewall was
"upgraded" to the latest and greatest, our bandwidth has gone down from
4 Mb/s to 20 Kb/s. The firewall stands in the way of the Perforce
server, so the bottleneck is currently the network here.

So I've tried running p42svn.pl directly on the Perforce server, but it
ran out of memory and I had to reboot the server. I have aksed sysadmins
to buy RAM or the server (128 Mb -> 512 Mb).

Make sure:
* you've got enough memory on the machine running p42svn.pl,
* the bandwidth to the Perforce server (if different) is sufficient,
   try running the script on the Perforce server.

I had successfully executed p42svn.pl on a 1.5 Gb depot something like
12 months ago while testing Subversion. That was before the current
bandwidth problem, I seem to recall it had taken a few hours to complete
- at most.

By the way I got an error message while running the latest p42svn.pl:
        Not an ARRAY reference at /home/user/p42svn.pl line 639.
which I got rid of by commenting out line 639 and I also got warnings:
        Key (depotFile) not a reference! at P4.pm line 211.
        Key (rev) not a reference! at P4.pm line 211.
which I ignored.
