Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

Several users have been complaining that the length of time to do an update
has been increasing. Having done some tests I am inclined to believe them.
The delay seems to be between the issue of the command and the start of the
server output (i.e. before the first lines of output appear - usually the
list of unknown files). Once the update actually starts it takes the same
time as it used to. I would estimate the delay to be about 10-15 seconds. We
do have a large number of tags & branches (approx 600 at present), could
this be the cause? Other than pruning out old revisions and tags, or
exporting everything to a new repository, is there anything we can do to
speed things up?

A smaller repository that we have, with only a handful of tags, only takes
about 3 seconds before an update starts.
