[cvsnt] Branch creation takes a long time

This can occur under very specific circumstances. Basically it gets harder and harder for CVSNT to find the next free number for a branch. We've had a patch submitted that'll be a part of the next next 2.5.04 build in a few weeks time. Be sure to keep an eye on this list for the annoucement. Also it's an option that needs to be enabled in the control panel (or on linux in the /etc/cvsnt/PServer config file).
More info is available in the bug database under bug 4855.
However that said, this problem only occurs when there are a LOT of branches, which possibly means that you are not using CVSNT in an "optimal" way. Please describe what business purpose creating so many branches is serving and we'll also try to point you in a more efficient direction.

Subject: [cvsnt] Branch creation takes a long time
I have a question about branching in CVSNT - it seems to be getting slower
and slower on our repository, it is currently taking over an hour to create
a branch across the whole repository. I am running CVSNT 2.5.02 Build 2115
on XP Pro.
The repository has about 18000 files and is just over 1Gb in size so it is
fairly large, however when we first set it up it took less than 6 minutes to
perform the same operation.
Can someone tell me if this slow-down is just normal - a product of creating
a large number of tags and branches? Should I expect it to get slower and
slower? I've been searching around but I cannot find any documentation that
Any responses or suggestions welcome, thanks,
