Subversion Performance

Hi Guys,
I'm used to be a colaborator of this mailing lists about a year ago, when I
did a subversion implementation in Windows. I stopped because I change jobs
and the new company had a CVS implementation with some customizations that
made the migration more complex.

Now, finally we did the CVS -> SVN migration sucessfully in a repository
with about 9 years old and 29259 revisions

But, after all this work I'm very disappointed with the performance of svn.
In the same machine of the old CVS it's so much slower. The machine isn't a
very bad one: Dual Quad Core Xeon (8x2.66Ghz) CPU, 16Gb RAM, with SAS hard
drives. The OS is Debian 4 (etch) Linux with Subversion 1.4.2 over apache
2.2.x (Debian etch default).

We're using TortoiseSVN as clients.

The main problem is server CPU hitting 100%. It happens everytime a checkout
is done and in show log operations. If I go to my "trunk" and do a show log,
the server gots 100% CPU for about 5-6 minutes even stopping serving other

I really want to know if there is any workarounds or optmizations that can
be done to solve this problem.

Thank you for your attention,

Eric Lemes
