Fisheye fails to connect to the Subversion repository after a short time of successful operation.

If you use the svn:// protocol to access a Subversion repository, you may notice that Fisheye fails to connect to the repository after a short time of successful operation.

On Unix systems, the svn:// protocol is usually handled by inetd or xinetd. These daemons apply, by default, a connection per second limit to incoming connections. Any connections above this rate are rejected by the server.

Two options for fixing this problem:

  • Ask your system administrator increase the connection rate allowed for the svn connection by updating the xinetd configuration, or
  • Specify a connection per second limit in your Fisheye repository definition, to prevent Fisheye from exceeding the xinetd limits.
