Searching A SVN Repo

I realize this is not directly related to SVN itself; however, I am
hoping this community may have some suggestions. If there is a more
appropriate forum I should be engaging, please let me know.

We have a repo with over 125 GB of data, containing everything from
source code to requirements documents, etc. The repo is accessible via
https. We'd like to be able to search the contents of the repo. A use
case may be taking a phrase of interest, some text, and finding
occurrences within the repo where this text resides (ie, within the
actual source code or documents).

I have considered pointing something like a search appliance at the
https interface and letting it crawl/spider/index the data. That could
be one option.

And yes, one could checkout/update the repo to search it, but at 125 GB
and growing that is a cumbersome approach to do many client-side searches.

Would anyone have any other options? Has anyone done something similar?

Thank you,
