Hi, I've noticed that recent versions of git consume a lot of memory during "git fsck", to the point where I've regularly had git fall victim to Linux's OOM killer.
For example, if I clone torvalds/linux.git, and then run "git fsck --connectivity-only" in the newly cloned repository, git will consume more than 6GB of physical memory, while older versions peak at about 2GB. I've managed to bisect this down to this commit in v2.14: ad2db4030e42890e569de529e3cd61a8d03de497 fsck: remove redundant parse_tree() invocation If I revert that commit (on top of current master) the memory consumption goes down to 2GB again. The change looks relatively harmless to me, so does anyone know what's going on here? Thanks, Dominic
