Dear all,

We are currently experiencing problems commiting large files to our CVSNT 

Our configuration:
The file we have is a 22 Mb xml file, which is an extract from ERWin Data 
Modeller. The historized file on the server is about 600MB.
The server runs on a windows machine with 4GB phisical memory (2.5 GB 
free) and 4GB virtual memory.

The problem:
Until recently we were able to commit all our changes. After major changes 
in the file we can no longer commit it. Apparently the changes are to big 
for the diff.
We tried to apply small changes and commit the file and it works.

This is the error message from CVS:
cvs [server aborted]: out of memory; can not reallocate 337641472 bytes

Can somebody give me a hint how to solve this problem?

Many thanks in advance

With best regards / Mit freundlichen Grüßen 

Georgi Kalojanov
