Correction, I meant to say KBytes/s.

Windows clients connecting remotely start off fast 2000-3000kbit/s then slow down to maximum 800kbit/s, the sshd process running at 100%, while the svnserve at 5%. So, I believe it is an issue with ssh rather than svn. Skelta mode seems to refer to apache, however these clients connect over ssh. -- Zoran Petkovic Industrial Engineering Technology Pty Ltd +61 413 254 315 <tel:0413%20254%20315> | zoran_at_ietcombustion.com On 14/09/2017, 10:10 PM, "Johan Corveleyn" <jcorvel_at_gmail.com> wrote: On Wed, Sep 13, 2017 at 7:20 AM, Matt Simmons <bandman_at_gmail.com> wrote: > On Tue, Sep 12, 2017 at 12:14 PM Zoran Petkovic < zoran_at_ietcombustion.com> > wrote: >> >> In the past few days I have been doing extensive testing of Subversion >> with different clients, operating systems, client and server versions and >> have noticed very strange behaviour with windows clients connecting to Linux >> servers, hitting them with excessive CPU usage on the sshd process, where >> the Linux clients do not exhibit this behaviour. >> >> >> >> A sample test setup is as follows: >> >> Server Linux Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS, OpenSSH_7.2p2 Ubuntu-4ubuntu2.2, OpenSSL >> 1.0.2g 1 Mar 2016, Subversion version 1.9.3 (and 1.9.7). >> >> Client TortoiseSVN 1.9.7 >> >> >> >> When checking out large repositories the linux server is hit on the sshd >> process, the process running with 100% cpu usage.

One possible explanation would be that the windows clients perform the checkout faster than the linux clients for some reason, thus being able to put higher load on the server, saturating its cpu or disk I/O. Other than that I have no idea. The Linux client you're testing is also 1.9.7? Perhaps the windows client and the linux client are performing the checkout in a different way for some reason (I'm thinking of the so-called "skelta mode" vs. "bulk mode", see http://subversion.apache.org/docs/release-notes/1.8.html# serf-skelta-default). -- JohanReceived on 2017-09-21 23:06:18 CEST
