Subject Re: Deployment takes forever with many files

Hi Ivan,

sorry it took me so long to answer.

No, the log files don´t give any hint about what is going on. It only 
prints messages coming from our application and those messages are the 
same for both cases (started with all data on the local disk and started 
with data located on an NFS share).
