Subject Re: svn status and info slowness when multiple files are passed as args
Date Wed, 26 Jun 2019 07:32:26 GMT
Apologies for the delay on this issue. I did more testing and the following
was my findings:

svn info -r HEAD "svn://mysvnserver/1.10/test.txt" "svn://<server
name>/1.10/test2.txt" <-- slow
svn info -r HEAD "svn://" "svn://<IPv4 address
of server>/1.10/test2.txt" <-- fast

If I am not using the svn protocol and just passing in the file path on
disk, depending on how the files were checked out:

if checked out using Tortoise SVN and specifying the repository server as
svn info -r HEAD "C:/1.10/test.txt" "C:/1.10/test2.txt" <-- fast

if checked out using Tortoise SVN and specifying the address of the server
as "svn://mysvnserver":
svn info -r HEAD "C:/1.10/test.txt" "C:/1.10/test2.txt" <-- slow

Wondering if using the server name defaults to IPv6. I suppose that's up to
the router's configuration? When checking out files, is there something
added to the .svn folder that retains the knowledge of whether a file was
checked out using ipv4 or server name?
