Forgive me if this has already gone around on the mailing list, but I didn't
see anything about it.
I'm trying to perform a very large commit (~4 Gb) into my repository and
it's not working. The commit begins and starts tranferring the data. After
a while, no more dots appear showing me that the transfer is proceeding.
The svn client hangs there indefinitely without spitting out an error. On
the server, I can see an apache process running at around 98% cpu usage. It
looks like there is still some memory free on the server, so I don't think
it's thrashing. There is plenty of hard drive space available both on the
client and the server. Once things get this way I need to kill the client
and restart apache. I didn't see anything useful in my apache access or
error logs. I can see a transaction in the repository using 'svnadmin
lstxns /path/to/repos'. The transaction folder weighs in at 2.1 Gb. Here
are some stats about my server:
Subversion 1.3.0 (built from source)
Repository on ext3 filesystem
Have I reached a commit size limit in apache? ra_dav?
I have sucessfully done commits around 1.5 Gb and I can split the big one up
to get around the problem. Does anyone have any advice on how to fix the
