We do game development and use CVS to distribute data files to ~40 people who do frequent updates. There are several large files (more than a couple of MB). The server has 512MB RAM and it is easily exhausted. Adding more RAM is a possibility, but it is not a fix to the problem (and I don't even know if it is possible for our server). Adding swap space is what I have done, but it just prevents running out of memory - using it slows down CVS much. Michal Kara
