Search the archive for perfroamce - this has been asked many times before.
You need to isolate the client or the server, then the disk then the network etc etc.
On the server enable "clients are allowed to trace server" - otherwise traces are meaningless.
If other clients are OK - most likely cause is a faulty disk driver (or faulty disk) on the linux box - fastest way to test that is to checkout to stdout (cvs co -p > /dev/null).
Also - upgrade your linux client to cvsnt 2.5.03 as well - 1.11 is just too old.

Subject: [cvsnt] Sudden degrade in checkout performance
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
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.

Please can someone give me some suggestions for the cause or how I may go
about looking for the cause.
