Continuing my performance tests, I tried unpulling and re-pulling a bunch
of patches in a GHC tree. I'm unpulling about 400 patches using
--from-tag, and then pulling them again from a local repo. Summary: darcs2
is about 10x slower than darcs1 on unpull, and on pull it is 100x slower in
user time but only 20x slower in elapsed time.
In both cases, the repository was on an NFS filesystem. In the darcs2
case, the repository I was pulling from was on the local disk, and I'm also
using a cache (NFS-mounted). The darcs2 repository has been optimized, but
the darcs1 repository has not (at lesat, not recently). I did all of these
a couple of times to eliminate the effects of cache preloading etc., the
times reported are from the second run.
