CVS SLOOOOW on XP

CVS SLOOOOW on XP

CVS SLOOOOW on XP

(OP)
I've installed CVSNT 2.08d on an XP Pro box and transferred the repository from a Linux hosted installation. The problem is that, although it works, performance is dreadfully slow - e.g. a node that takes .75 seconds to expand in Eclipse coming from the Linux box takes 8 seconds from the XP repository. I've tried this locally and over the network on two different XP Pro boxes. Here are the specs:

XP (remote): CPU - 701Mhz, RAM - 2 Gb
XP (local): CPU - 2.66Mgz, RAM - 1 Gb
RH Linux: CPU 1.0 Mgz, RAM 126 Mg

Performance in general on the XP boxes is fine - plenty of free memory and cpu. Is there some configuration option I'm missing or is this the nature of the beast on Windows?

Thanks.

Hi,

Hmm I agree it's slower on XP, but not as slow on my machine. Have you tried adding the -z9 option and tried WinCVS? There are quite a few settings on the CVSNT control panel...not sure if that would make a difference.

Cheers,

Ed

Ok, this looks to be specifically a browse issue in Eclipse.  Checkout times are comparable on both servers using both Eclipse and the cvs command line in cygwin - between 45 and 55 seconds for ~150 Mg of stuff.  Eclipse users, have you experienced this?  I'll check out the Eclipse forums, also.
