I'm working with an svn server that takes an extremely long time to compute merge operations. What can cause this? I've read something that indicates 1.5 is slower than other versions, is this true?
This particular server runs on centos and is version 1.5.4 (r33841)
The available resources on the machine seem ok but perhaps could be optimized. I've seen an svn server with more 4x the revisions (~2200) compute comparable merges in half the time it takes this server. What's the best setup for a linux SVN server that needs to be able to compute merges optimally?
