Re: svn cleanup performance

Thanks for the feedback. It's good to know that SVN doesn't have to run on a
dedicated server, I just used the old school of thought as Rational people
always recommended this method. So when I set up my new subversion server I
just took the same astringent approach. We have about 40 developers plus
other departments who commit their .doc files or scripts to the server too;
so roughly about 70 users. It's a brand new enterprise Dell server with 4
cpu's and 300 gb hard drive with raid mirroring. I really CMA. :)

I think this really depends upon the version control software you're
running, and what else you might be running on the box. Having never
used ClearCase, I can't offer an opinion there. SourceSafe I'd say
definitely needs a dedicated server simply because it's so fragile -
run VSS and IIS on it and nothing more. Even anti-virus caused

SVN, OTOH, seems to be lightweight and stable enough that it can share
with other server processes, especially if it's all for build/project
management. As long as you've got the disk capacity and throughput.
Maybe my usage scenario just isn't large-scale enough for me to be
having to worry about this stuff.
