Thanks Stefan,

Finally I am able to see the difference in size of filtered dump file.

You really helped me lot. Thanks again.

I cannot tell exactly because you haven't provided the <Location>
tatements of your httpd config that contains the SVNParentPath

Assuming you are using <Location /svn>, it seems the name of your
repository is 'database'.

Dump files contain only paths which are *inside* the repository, i.e.
paths shown by a command such as:
  svn ls

It seems E_Learning is a directory in the root directory of the
repository, so filtering the dump file should probably look like this:

svndumpfilter exclude /E_Learning/Development/Project1  < repo.dump >

However, if you were using <Location /svn/database> or <Location
/svn/database/E_Learning> the paths inside the dump file would be

If you don't really understand how this all works, I suggest that you
create a small repository to test with and try out some commands until
you understand their behaviour, and then tackle the time intensive task
of filtering large dump files.
