RE: commiting a large number of files

some of the teams for which I manage Subversion have similar sizes of
working copies ( some have larger projects too ). A commit of a few files in
this size of wc can take one or two minutes to prepare in TortoiseSVN, 8
minutes for this size of project is too long! My env: TortoiseSVN 1.3, svn
1.2.3/apache 2.0.54 on suse/Win2k+NTFS.
If you have a virus scanner, disable it for the project folders. We found
that disabling the TSVN icons altogether can improve perfomance as well.
Probably you'll get more help on the TortoiseSVN mailing list:

Subject: commiting a large number of files

Hello everyone,

I am currently trying to migrate a large project (~ 6k files, 100Mb) to
subversion, however, I have been experiencing some performance issues.

I am not sure whether it is an usability issue or not, maybe you guys can
help out (Obs: I am using SVN with TortoiseSVN over MSWindows 2000).

Ok, lets say I have edited a few files (ten files or so) spread all around
my many directories, so when I open the windows explorer on the first level
under my project root most of the folders are marked with the red flag.

I select all of them, right lick and choose "commit". I have to wait at
least 8 minutes before the changed files list (where you are prompted for
the commit comment) is fully displayed.

Is that right?? I am guessing that subversion (or maybe tortoisesvn) is
checking all files for modifications, although they had already been flagged
"green" or "red" as in "up-to-date" and "modified"

Well... that's about it... any thoughts would be very much appreciated.

best regards,

Ricardo Birmann
