Should I move my source control application to its own server?

If you anticipate heavy source code check-in and check-out traffic, consider setting up the source code application on its own server.

To host your source control services on their own server, you must set up a source code repository server and integrate it with TeamForge. You can integrate any number of source code servers with your TeamForge site.

The advantage of hosting a service on a separate server is that it does not share CPU, RAM or I/O bandwidth with the server that is hosting the main TeamForge application.

Note: If you need to move a source code integration, contact your CollabNet representative for help.

To help decide whether you need a separate source control server, consider these approximate values:

Shared TeamForge-SCM server Standalone SCM server
Daily source code commits Fewer than 1000 More than 1000
