> From: Mark Donnelly > I've been tasked by my company to convert an existing linux-based CVS > 1.11.1p1 repository to a windows 2003-based CVSNT repository (CVSNT > 2.5.03 Build 2382). However, I've run into a problem where a checkout > is taking two and a half times as long with CVSNT as it is with CVS. Mark - I suspect I'm going to get yelled at for saying this, but various people have reported poor performance of CVSNT compared to CVS 1.11 over the years. The typical developer response appears to be to swear blind that there can't be a problem, rather than to investigate. CVSNT does rather more than CVS, and several of the code paths in Windows are rather more complex than in Linux, but not all of the difference seems to be down to those points. I assume you're either not running real-time anti-virus or have disabled it on the repo and temp filestore? This is well-known for crippling performance. - Peter
