How long do your svn dumps take

Hi All...

 

I am upgrading from 1.5.5 to 1.6.1 today. Up to this point I have only
been using svnadmin update. But, I decided it was time to do a dump/load
as many have recommended.

 

But, dumping one of our repo took about 5 hours. This is a 20GB repo. Is
this normal. I see in the book it talks about doing a nightly dump so
you can back up. Do people really run dumps that take 4+ hours?

 

I can't see what I am doing working. It is a pretty simple command. I
have the repository folder and the folder I am dumping to excluded from
McAfree on-demand scans.

 

Also, this isn't a slouch server. It is a 3.0Ghz dual core Xenon 5160
with 4GB of ram and raid 5 scsi raid 5.

 

Currently it is loading and has been running for almost 4 hours and is
on about rev 10k of about 32k.

 

Are these typical dump/load time.
