2014-06-16Merge branch 'nd/daemonize-gc'Junio C Hamano
"git gc --auto" was recently changed to run in the background to give control back early to the end-user sitting in front of the terminal, but it forgot that housekeeping involving reflogs should be done without other processes competing for accesses to the refs. * nd/daemonize-gc: gc --auto: do not lock refs in the background
2014-05-27gc --auto: do not lock refs in the backgroundNguyễn Thái Ngọc Duy
9f673f9 (gc: config option for running --auto in background - 2014-02-08) puts "gc --auto" in background to reduce user's wait time. Part of the garbage collecting is pack-refs and pruning reflogs. These require locking some refs and may abort other processes trying to lock the same ref. If gc --auto is fired in the middle of a script, gc's holding locks in the background could fail the script, which could never happen before 9f673f9. Keep running pack-refs and "reflog --prune" in foreground to stop parallel ref updates. The remaining background operations (repack, prune and rerere) should not impact running git processes.

2014-03-31gc --aggressive: make --depth configurableNguyễn Thái Ngọc Duy
When 1c192f3 (gc --aggressive: make it really aggressive - 2007-12-06) made --depth=250 the default value, it didn't really explain the reason behind, especially the pros and cons of --depth=250. An old mail from Linus below explains it at length. Long story short, --depth=250 is a disk saver and a performance killer. Not everybody agrees on that aggressiveness. Let the user configure it. From: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org> Subject: Re: [PATCH] gc --aggressive: make it really aggressive Date: Thu, 6 Dec 2007 08:19:24 -0800 (PST) Message-ID: <alpine.LFD.0.9999.0712060803430.13796@woody.linux-foundation.org> Gmane-URL: http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.gcc.devel/94637 On Thu, 6 Dec 2007, Harvey Harrison wrote: > > 7:41:25elapsed 86%CPU Heh.

The longer delta chains do make it potentially much more expensive to then use old history. So there's a trade-off. And quite frankly, a delta depth of 250 is likely going to cause overflows in the delta cache (which is only 256 entries in size *and* it's a hash, so it's going to start having hash conflicts long before hitting the 250 depth limit). So when I said "--depth=250 --window=250", I chose those numbers more as an example of extremely aggressive packing, and I'm not at all sure that the end result is necessarily wonderfully usable. It's going to save disk space (and network bandwidth - the delta's will be re-used for the network protocol too!), but there are definitely downsides too, and using long delta chains may simply not be worth it in practice. (And some of it might just want to have git tuning, ie if people think that long deltas are worth it, we could easily just expand on the delta hash, at the cost of some more memory used!) That said, the good news is that working with *new* history will not be affected negatively, and if you want to be _really_ sneaky, there are ways to say "create a pack that contains the history up to a version one year ago, and be very aggressive about those old versions that we still want to have around, but do a separate pack for newer stuff using less aggressive parameters" So this is something that can be tweaked, although we don't really have any really nice interfaces for stuff like that (ie the git delta cache size is hardcoded in the sources and cannot be set in the config file, and the "pack old history more aggressively" involves some manual scripting and knowing how "git pack-objects" works rather than any nice simple command line switch). So the thing to take away from this is: - git is certainly flexible as hell - .. but to get the full power you may need to tweak things - .. happily you really only need to have one person to do the tweaking, and the tweaked end results will be available to others that do not need to know/care. And whether the difference between 320MB and 500MB is worth any really involved tweaking (considering the potential downsides), I really don't know. Only testing will tell.

2014-01-03gc: notice gc processes run by other usersKyle J. McKay
Since 64a99eb4 git gc refuses to run without the --force option if another gc process on the same repository is already running. However, if the repository is shared and user A runs git gc on the repository and while that gc is still running user B runs git gc on the same repository the gc process run by user A will not be noticed and the gc run by user B will go ahead and run. The problem is that the kill(pid, 0) test fails with an EPERM error since user B is not allowed to signal processes owned by user A (unless user B is root). Update the test to recognize an EPERM error as meaning the process exists and another gc should not be run (unless --force is given). Signed-off-by: Kyle J.

* nd/gc-lock-against-each-other: gc: remove gc.pid file at end of execution
2013-10-18gc: remove gc.pid file at end of executionJonathan Nieder
This file isn't really harmful, but isn't useful either, and can create minor annoyance for the user: * It's confusing, as the presence of a *.pid file often implies that a process is currently running. A user running "ls .git/" and finding this file may incorrectly guess that a "git gc" is currently running. * Leaving this file means that a "git gc" in an already gc-ed repo is no-longer a no-op. A user running "git gc" in a set of repositories, and then synchronizing this set (e.g. rsync -av, unison, ...) will see all the gc.pid files as changed, which creates useless noise. This patch unlinks the file after the garbage collection is done, so that gc.pid is actually present only during execution. Future versions of Git may want to use the information left in the gc.pid file (e.g. for policies like "don't attempt to run a gc if one has already been ran less than X hours ago"). If so, this patch can safely be reverted. For now, let's not bother the users.

2012-04-18gc: use argv-array for sub-commandsJeff King
git-gc executes many sub-commands. The argument list for some of these is constant, but for others we add more arguments at runtime. The latter is implemented by allocating a constant extra number of NULLs, and either using a custom append function, or just referencing unused slots by number. As of commit 7e52f56, which added two new arguments, it is possible to exceed the constant number of slots for "repack" by running "git gc --aggressive", causing "git gc" to die. This patch converts all of the static argv lists to use argv-array. In addition to fixing the overflow caused by 7e52f56, it has a few advantages: 1. We can drop the custom append function (which, incidentally, had an off-by-one error exacerbating the static limit). 2. We can drop the ugly magic numbers used when adding arguments to "prune". 3. Adding further arguments will be easier; you can just add new "push" calls without worrying about increasing any static limits.

2012-04-11gc: do not explode objects which will be immediately prunedJeff King
When we pack everything into one big pack with "git repack -Ad", any unreferenced objects in to-be-deleted packs are exploded into loose objects, with the intent that they will be examined and possibly cleaned up by the next run of "git prune". Since the exploded objects will receive the mtime of the pack from which they come, if the source pack is old, those loose objects will end up pruned immediately. In that case, it is much more efficient to skip the exploding step entirely for these objects. This patch teaches pack-objects to receive the expiration information and avoid writing these objects out. It also teaches "git gc" to pass the value of gc.pruneexpire to repack (which in turn learns to pass it along to pack-objects) so that this optimization happens automatically during "git gc" and "git gc --auto".

NOTE! If you do this in a clean tree (no object files etc), or using an editor that has auto-completion rules that ignores '*.o' files, you won't see that annoying 'Display all 180 possibilities?' message - it will just show the choices instead. I think bash has some cut-off around 100 choices or something. So the reason I see this is that I'm using an odd editory, and thus don't have the rules to cut down on auto-completion.
