Looks like nobody has responded yet. I've certainly not encountered that behavior.

I think you'll need to provide more information. The problem could stem from so many places. Could be, for example, that you've got a virus scanner, and when you export the 30K files, you're exporting files that draw more attention from a virus scanner.

What's the client on which you're running the svn export command? Are you doing the export across the network, or on the same machine hosting the repository? When the export is done, how much disk space is taken by the export (in both cases)?

Hello all,

we are deploying svn 1.8.11 on our server Rhel 6.6. 
We are facing some issue within svn export.
it seems that it has some perf limitation when dealing with a huge number of files.

we have this delay when doing an svn export url and the target has:

less than 20k files export  = ~ 1 minute 

more than 30k files export  > 1 hour


Is it a known issue? Has someone encouter thsi behavior?

thnak you for your valuable support.
