CVSNT is the Open Source / free version of CVS bundled with WinCVS and
TortoiseCVS runs on Linux, Unix as well as Windows etc.

If you are using mostly Windows2000 clients then you are probably using
CVSNT - maybe you should consider using CVSNT on the server (Unix) as

Subject: CVS taking memory

Hi all,

Let me explain the CVS environment here in my company.

CVS is running on a linux box, and the version is CVS 1.11.6.
I have configured the env in such a way that we use pserver to connect
to the server, from our 
clients which are all Windows2000 boxes.
We have users, working for a project, mapped to a single unix user name
and which inturn belong to 
various groups. These groups are used to control folder-wise access. We
have as many unix users as 
we have projects. Each and every project has a corresponding unix user
name. All the cvs users 
working on a project are mapped to that particular unix user. Apart from
this we have a webmin server running on port 8500 and an apache running
on 80, from the 
same machine.

With all these, we are facing problems with memory on the server. One
project takes around 800 MB 
of memory. We have given 4 GB of RAM for the machine, and 6 GB of swap

Can any one of you guide me, as to what I can do to monitor this ??? Is
there any solution for 
this ?? 
there are over 700+ users in our company, who hit the CVS server.
