I have a big repository, around 80GB
git --version
#git version 1.7.12
git init .
#Initialized empty Git repository in /reponame/.git/
git add -A .

git commmit -m "Backup 2012-08-19 03:43:44"
#fatal: Out of memory, malloc failed (tried to allocate 32220431361 bytes)
#[master (root-commit) 8053f0d] Backup 2012-08-19 03:43:44

 Why GIT need 30GB of memory for a commit?

This is not in accordance with the first paragraph of the homepage of
main page of GIT:

Git is a free and open source distributed version control system
designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with
speed and efficiency.
