Hi there, How are you performing the commit? If you're using a client is there a difference in commit time between command line and an SVN client? Are other actions slow too or just commits? No network problems?
My client is Tortoise 1.6 & Tortoise 1.7 & Intellig IDEA , SVN Speed in Checkout is good and CheckOut too , but when Checkout files it need a few minutes for finish it , in tortoise just very slow but in Intellig IDEA (An IDE For Java Develop) may be Crash and return an error .
Ofcourse I should say it :
I change Server IP and after change IP Speed Commit changed ! for more speed I Disabaled HTTPS and switch use to http .
In many time try other conditions , for sample , switch between SVN 1.6 & SVN 1.7 and Change Tortoise Client 1.6 & 1.7 ,so For Use Intelig IDEA I check it via Version 10 , 11 , 12 but speed Commit is very bad .
I should say it which I dont use any Antivirus or Firewall . My Server is Linux 64x (SLES 64X SP2).
