Slow performance using http:// vs. svn://

Hi all,

I am working with my company's IT department to setup a Subversion server so
that we can evaluate switching from CVS to Subversion. IT would like us to
use an Apache server for repository access. However, the performance is
pretty bad compared to just running svnserve. A fresh checkout using
http:// takes 3:24 while checking out the same repository using svn:// takes
1:47. At first I suspected that Apache's LDAP authentication was slowing
things down, but I had them disable authentication with little change in the
checkout time.

Any idea why http:// would be so much slower than svn:// ? Is this
expected? Can you recommend any change to the Apache configuration to speed
things up?

thanks,
David
