Server performance on Windows and migration

Hi all,

Lately our subversion server version 1.4.5 (on Windows 2003 server, NTFS) became very slow. Nothing new happened on the machine, no new firewalls, no setting changes. The repository is about 25G big with about 30k files, using FSFS. We have like maximum 2-3 users simultaneously but not doing much work, they use Tortoise latest versions (1.5.x) plus one Hudson client (the continuous integration tool, no idea what its client is based on).

Problem is, svnserver,exe pegs at 100% CPU for too long. A checkout yesterday of a project (size 2G, the kits shouldn't probably be saved in...) from the above repository took like 12 hours. I have absolutely NO IDEA what is happening.

I couldn't find many performance tuning tips for Windows so I made sure we have disabled last file access for NTFS, disabled indexing, removed dead transactions - but nothing improved significantly in the performance.

Should I expect anything performance-wise from an upgrade to 1.5.5? Would sharding do me good, and if yes is there a way to convert the existing repository to a sharded one?

Thanks a lot,
