svnadmin Options

Options in svnadmin are global, just as they are in svn:

--bdb-log-keep

(Berkeley DB-specific.) Disable automatic log removal of database logfiles. Having these logfiles around can be convenient if you need to restore from a catastrophic repository failure.

--bdb-txn-nosync

(Berkeley DB-specific.) Disables fsync when committing database transactions. Used with the svnadmin create command to create a Berkeley DB-backed repository with DB_TXN_NOSYNC enabled (which improves speed but has some risks associated with it).

--bypass-hooks

Bypass the repository hook system.

--clean-logs

Remove unused Berkeley DB logs.

--force-uuid

By default, when loading data into repository that already contains revisions, svnadmin will ignore the UUID from the dump stream. This option will cause the repository’s UUID to be set to the UUID from the stream.

--ignore-uuid

By default, when loading an empty repository, svnadmin will ignore the UUID from the dump stream. This option will force that UUID to be ignored (useful for overriding your configuration file if it has --force-uuid set).

--incremental

Dump a revision only as a diff against the previous revision, instead of the usual fulltext.

--parent-dir DIR

When loading a dump file, root paths at DIR instead of /.

--pre-1.4-compatible

When creating a new repository, use a format that is compatible with versions of Subversion earlier than Subversion 1.4.

--pre-1.5-compatible

When creating a new repository, use a format that is compatible ...
