Does anyone know what the expected time is for the tag operation
(specifically the file lock time), for an individual file?  The file
mentioned below was locked for more than 20 seconds.  This is a text file,
which is 106.2kb (repository ",v" file), on a linux server.  I am trying to
determine if I have a performance problem on my server, or if I can do some
lockserver tuning,  neither of which I can find any information on from
searching the cvsnt list archives.

This has been an occasional problem for us in the past, but seems to be
occurring much more often currently....and we're not sure why

Thanks for any information,
