I am back with very serious performence problem. I've already investigated all possibilities on this list and the net but so far I don't get what's happenning.

Here's the scenario:

* Windows 2000 server box almost dedicated to CVSNT (PIV 2.8Ghz - 1,5Go RAM)
* CVSNT (Scorpio) build 2260
* Two repositories (100Mb for the first one, 180Mb for the second) ; 2 branches on each, 4 tags on each

I am testing this server alone and it's really fast (way much faster than Travis which is our current production server). One of my colleague has serious performence problem so we decided to copy his repository over (the one of 180Mb) to this machine to test.

I was busy doing a CVS tag on the whole repository (the first). As soon as my colleague started a checkout on the second repository, performence were really awfull ( 4 times slower). I ask my colleague to abort his checkout and performence went back to normal.

The machine has 700Mo free, the anti-virus is disabled, CPU is almost 0%, disks are idle.

I don't see where the bottleneck is. 

Any idea?
