slow process of post-receive script on a remote (samba) share in GIT

0 votes
52 views

I am using Git bash from version 1.8.3.msysgit.0, on a Windows 7x64 PC. I have an issue with executing git push if I have a post-receive script configured.
The content of the script is not really important, as if I have a script that contains only commented out lines (around 70 lines), my git push command is delayed with around 5 seconds.
I`ve tested the script on another PC and it is working fine. No delay at all. So there are some issues on my PC regarding how git processes remote scripts.
I took a wireshark trace with 2 scenarios on my PC:

 1. just execute `cat     
    post-receive` command in the git bash
 2. did a `real` git push

Results of the wireshark traces shows:

 1. Read AndX Request, FID: 0x228f, 1024 bytes at offset 0 (1024 bytes at time, always)
 2. Read AndX Request, FID: 0x21c9, 1 byte at offset 0 (1 byte, always)

Conclusion:
git push command reads the post-receive script in 1 byte chunks, which dramatically slows down the execution process.

If more information is required about my setup or configuration, I will provided it happily, but I think this 1 byte read is the main reason for the issue.

Has anyone seen something similar? Or have any clues what is going on?

I work on some files and push/merge them to the remote server. Sometimes I get merge conflicts on those files and have to fix them. That's completely fine. I get that.

What I don't understand is that sometimes during this process I will get merge conflicts in files _I have never touched_. In fact they are in a completely different series of directories to the one I am working on and someone else project entirely. How am I meant to know how to fix these? I dont know what the other developer wanted to do and if they have done it right.

I thought git only merged/pushed the files you have changed? If someone else has changed Group A files on the remote repo, why must I change my local Group A files when I am _pushing _completely different set of Group B files?

Sure, Id understand if I were pulling files down to my local and had to resolve merge conflicts then, but this isn't happening when I push the files up.

Any help or advice is much appreciated. Sorry if I sound frustrated - I am really trying hard to get my head round this whole git thing but its just so weird.

Is it possible to make a git remote pack its repository on every push?

I have tried setting gc.auto to 1 on both the remote and the clients, but so far no push seems to have packed anything.

Do I need to create a push hook on the remote to make it pack?

The reason for this is that I have several git repositorier for org-mode files.

Having a history, and rollback of the history, is more important than having a good history.

The diff of each push is small, the repositories only contain one, or a handful of org-mode files, and some of the org-mode files are quite large.

The remote is git 1:2.1.4-2.1 (debian packge, git --version reports 2.1.4), running on debian 8.0 "jessie".

The clients are various GNU/linux git (whatever comes with the distro out of the box) and Win32 msysgit installations.
