Investigate usual revision size of files
Closed, DuplicatePublic


In order to find out how long a file move will usually take,

  • take a (reasonably big) random sample of files
  • get the number of their file and their text revisions
  • plot on a graph how often which numbers appear
  • make an estimation how long the import time would be for 75%, 90%, 95% and 99% of the cases

If we are to expect import times of multiple seconds or longer, we should consider doing the move asynchronously
