This has been a very interesting thread. What follows is my analysis of some of the highlights of this discussion. Sadly, I have concluded that I can not recommend CVSNT to my managers, since the quality of the product matters at least as much as the feature-set, if not more. At this point, we are trying to decide between CVS and Subversion.
From Tonys response:
I've run successful tests with over 1000 clients (the OS gets real slow
under that kind of load so the cvs processes end up not being the
bottleneck)... 50 is not a stress test. 50 what happens when an office
starts up in the morning and everyone runs cvs update... it's routine
However, when Rahul asked for the CVSNT version that was subjected to this kind of stress, Tonys response was:
That was probably around the 2.5.01 era... I can't imagine it's got much
slower since although I could fairly easily setup the test again.
Hmm so, releases are not routinely qualified with any stress-testing?!
Arthur Barrett, in a rather defensive response to Rahuls post, said:
Of significance to me is that build 2221 is one we rejected to send to
commercial support customers, though not specifically for that
(performance testing) reason.
Are builds that you rejected to send to commercial support customers routinely foisted on non-paying customers? What is the intent of this process? To destabilize installations at non-paying customer sites and encourage them to become commercial support customers?
