Would you please help me on this.


This looks like some misconfiguration on vcsserver/rhodecode. Can you check under admin > settings > system info if there aren’t any errors reported ?


Hi ,

Thanks for reply, am doing POC to integrate with my GIT and SVN repo with rhodecode,
I have quick question that, am having single svn repo with 500 gb data, with atleast 1000 checkin’s every day, will rhode code handle, would you please let me know best suggestion if we go with rhodecode.



I’d say with the right hardware configuration, proper loadbalancing it should be able to do this. There will be a overhead when using http protocol because of all permissions checks etc, but we’re improving it and also svn team is optimizing svn protocol time-over-time, so soon we’ll be at native mod_dav_svn speeds.

You can try with free community edition, for POC, or we can issue you a trial Enterprise Edition key if you wish.
