Re: samba performance with svn?

It used to be much, much worse: see the old thread at

A large improvement occurred for Subversion on CIFS in a following
Subversion release, I believe as a performance enhancement to Subversion
1.6.x, I don't remember which release. I'd expect CIFS to remain slower
than NFS: it's a very chatty protocol.

Tuning Samba for performance can be..... an art form. I've personally found
TCP_NODELAY to be helpful. I'd actually avoid CIFS and use NFS where
feasible, which modern Windows releases support well, If you *have* to use
Samba, and want a recent release for RHEL 6 compatible operating systems, I
publish tools for building Samba 4.x releases over at
https://github.com/nkadel/samba-4.0.7-srpm/ .
