Well the history does en-compose about 10 years of product development and has a high number of files in the repo (including about 3 copies of the kernel - sans upstream history). 15:50 ajb@sloy/x86_64 [work.git] >time git log --pretty=oneline | wc -l 24648 real 0m0.434s user 0m0.388s sys 0m0.112s Although it doesn't take too long to walk the whole mainline history (obviously ignoring all the other branches). 15:52 ajb@sloy/x86_64 [work.git] >git count-objects -v -H count: 581 size: 5.09 MiB in-pack: 399307 packs: 1 size-pack: 1.49 GiB prune-packable: 0 garbage: 0 size-garbage: 0 bytes It is a pick repo. The gc --aggressive nearly took out my machine keeping around 4gb resident for most of the half hour and using nearly 8gb of VM. Of course most of the history is not needed for day to day stuff. Maybe if I split the pack files up it wouldn't be quite such a strain to work through them? > 2. You have have huge (binary) files checked into your repository. Do > you? If so, why isn't the code in streaming.c kicking in? We do have some binary blobs in the repository (mainly DSP and FPGA images) although not a huge number: 15:58 ajb@sloy/x86_64 [work.git] >time git log --pretty=oneline -- xxx xxx/xxxxxx/*.out ./xxx/xxx/*.out ./xxx/xxxxxxx/*.out | wc -l 234 real 0m0.590s user 0m0.552s sys 0m0.040s How can I tell if streaming is kicking in or now? -- Alex, homepage: http://www.bennee.com/~alex/ -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
