On my Linux test machine (Red Hat) the time taken to checkout a module has recently changed from around 1minute to ~12 hours (it has never run to completion yet). On the Linux machine, I am running cvs client 1.11.17, the CVS server is a Windows SmallBusinessServer running CVSNT2.5.03 build 2383. The network between the two machines is a single gigabit switch, pings between then show no loss and return in ~0.5mSec - they are on the same subnet as each other. Other Windows and Linux machines on the same subnet are still able to check out the module in around a minute. The linux machine is running nothing else at the moment, top show it sitting idle. There is masses of disk space available. Coming from the Windows world, I have even restarted the Linux box just in case. The output from -ttt looks like this, the first few entries take a few seconds, but large files take 10s of minutes. [ian at test checkout]$ cvs -ttt checkout mymodule -> main loop with CVSROOT=:pserver:user at myserver:/CVS/Repository -> safe_location( where=(null) ) -> Connecting to myserver(192.168.30.1):2401 -> Sending file `asm.jar' to server -> Sending file `mysql-connector-java-3.1.12-bin.jar' to server ? noael/WEB-INF/lib/.new.struts2-c -> unlink_file(CVS/Entries.Static) cvs server: Updating noael -> unlink_file(CVS/Tag) -> unlink_file(CVS/Entries.Static) cvs server: Updating noael/ERs -> unlink_file(CVS/Tag) -> unlink_file(CVS/Entries.Static) cvs server: Updating noael/WEB-INF -> unlink_file(CVS/Tag) -> unlink_file(CVS/Entries.Static) cvs server: Updating noael/WEB-INF/lib -> unlink_file(CVS/Tag) -> Register(asm.jar, 1.1, Tue Jun 19 06:16:54 2007, -kb, ) -> rename(CVS/Entries.Backup,CVS/Entries) -> unlink_file(CVS/Entries.Log) -> Register(mysql-connector-java-3.1.12-bin.jar, 1.3, Tue Jun 19 07:00:34 2007, -kb, ) -> rename(CVS/Entries.Backup,CVS/Entries) -> unlink_file(CVS/Entries.Log) I have tried checking out the module to a new dirrectory, but encounter the same performance. Please can someone give me some suggestions for the cause or how I may go about looking for the cause. Many thanks, Ian.
