Subject Re: Expected speed of commit over HTTP?
Date Thu, 06 Jul 2017 12:07:26 GMT
We've say 2-3x speed decrease using HTTP vs SSH in our cloud. With SSH and
some tuning we are getting close to the IO rate on the end server of any
size. HTTP/mod_dav and RTT is usually the culprit in our cases, on a LAN
that issues collapses. Likely server side processing of the delta's?
