Tags are generally very cheap, they don't take up much space or take
much time to process.  I don't have any CVS-specific suggestions, you
just need to do normal system performance tuning: profile your system to
find out what it's doing, identify bottlenecks, then devise solutions. 
Since CVS is not gernerally CPU intensive, it's likely that your problem
involves disk I/O, but you need measurements to be sure.  You can
probably get better advice from a Linux list than you can from here.
