RE: svn cleanup performance

I just wanna make couple of points EVEN IF some of you are already aware of

1. A respository should always have its own dedicated server and nothing
else should be served from that server.

2. Not that the disk space matters, so do the number of files or the *nix
inode limitatios. I don't know the exact number but recently we maxed the
number of files/inodes on a production/live server and surpassed 2.6 million
files and that brought our live server to a screeching halt and I had to
scram and delete about 20% of old outdated stuff to get the server back

3. I think it would be more efficient if you ran clean up, maybe just once a
week, instead of, every night?

Hi all,

(I've searched the archives but was unable to find an answer or
discussion on this)

we've got an svn repository with ~70000 files and directories. Updating
it on a daily basis takes a long time (so I've put that into a cron).
However, occasionally, errors occur and I have to svn cleanup.

I noticed that `svn cleanup` at the root of the repository takes
_really_ long time (more than 30 minutes) and eats up up to 200 MB of

Is there any way to tweak this, to make it faster and/or slimmer (apart
from making sure only to work on smaller sub-trees of the repo)? I
assume this is server-independent; my box is a FreeBSD box, but it also
occurs on various Linux boxes.
