Fisheye scanning repository speed

Norbert Rising Star Jul 21, 2013


im currently evaluating Fisheye,
Its running on the same linux machine as our svn repository, so it has direct file access

I added our main repository to be scanned
it took over 100 minutes for about a little over 800 revision, the trunk has about 80 MB

The revision are not so small, but in my opinion this is quite slow
are this numbers ok?

Unfortunately I do not know a benchmark took for the app, and yes, you appear to be correct on the SVN setup.

sysbench is a common package that you can install to benchmark performance on your server.

With direct file access, scanning speed is about 5..15 ms per changed path (note that a branch/tag commit affects a lot of paths at once)

Based off my experience for the number of changes and size using the vanilla configuration, it is slow. I don't have access to a bench mark tool of any kind. I just tested with similar setup (not SVN though) and I can get about 800 changes in about 10-15 minutes.

Overall question back...did you install it vanilla or did you do any customization?

Fisheye can move quickly or slow. The art is getting it in the "just right" sweet spot. You can alter memory allowed, size of the chunk to scan, etc. Sometimes going too high up the repository can mean you are scanning things that don't need to be scanned.

Also...if they are running on the same machine, you could be getting bit by disk I/O, Memory, processor, any number of things.

I installed it vanilla...
and i have to run it on the same machine because we are using SVN+SSH, and as far as I understand this is not possible with fisheye

I know all this fact, but I would like to know if this is realy slow, or this is normal usage speed.
Also I think the system is a little bit lagging. Is there some benchmark tool for the installation?
