Hello list,

I am still working on performence issues with CVSNT, latest build on a powerful box. The checkout on the machine hosting the server both using @localhost and @host is *really* fast (I could not expect it to be faster actually).

Running the checkout on a separate machine is much much slower. I've tried with a hub and even with a direct cable link between the 2 ethernet cards. Is there anything I can do to optimize this? The problem I am facing seems to be an network outage (the checkout takes 20 files then stops for a second or two, then continues). Since I have the same with a direct link connection, it does not seem to be a bandwidth issue.

Note that I am facing the exact same problem with a Redhat Enterprise setup with a "standard" cvs server.

Any idea?
