Re: performance issue concerning externals

Hi,

thank you for the fast reply.
Yes the externals are running on the same server, in the same repository
root as the other repositories.
When I directly checkout one of the externals, the performance is great.
As soon as I check out the main repository, the proccess hangs for about 8
minutes each time it reaches an external.
The repositories are all really small and don't contain big files.
I hope I didn't miss to provide important data.

Kind regards

Thorsten

P.S.:
A colleague just reported, he is experiencing the same issue on svn via
apache.
