NAME

git-commit-graph - Write and verify Git commit-graph files  

SYNOPSIS

git commit-graph read [--object-dir <dir>]
git commit-graph verify [--object-dir <dir>] [--shallow] [--[no-]progress]
git commit-graph write <options> [--object-dir <dir>] [--[no-]progress]

 

DESCRIPTION

Manage the serialized commit-graph file.  

OPTIONS

--object-dir

Use given directory for the location of packfiles and commit-graph file. This parameter exists to specify the location of an alternate that only has the objects directory, not a full .git directory. The commit-graph file is expected to be in the <dir>/info directory and the packfiles are expected to be in <dir>/pack.

--[no-]progress

Turn progress on/off explicitly. If neither is specified, progress is shown if standard error is connected to a terminal.
 

COMMANDS

write

Write a commit-graph file based on the commits found in packfiles.

With the --stdin-packs option, generate the new commit graph by walking objects only in the specified pack-indexes. (Cannot be combined with --stdin-commits or --reachable.)

With the --stdin-commits option, generate the new commit graph by walking commits starting at the commits specified in stdin as a list of OIDs in hex, one OID per line. (Cannot be combined with --stdin-packs or --reachable.)

With the --reachable option, generate the new commit graph by walking commits starting at all refs. (Cannot be combined with --stdin-commits or --stdin-packs.)

With the --append option, include all commits that are present in the existing commit-graph file.

With the --split option, write the commit-graph as a chain of multiple commit-graph files stored in <dir>/info/commit-graphs. The new commits not already in the commit-graph are added in a new "tip" file. This file is merged with the existing file if the following merge conditions are met:

• If --size-multiple=<X> is not specified, let X equal 2. If the new tip file would have N commits and the previous tip has M commits and X times N is greater than M, instead merge the two files into a single file.

• If --max-commits=<M> is specified with M a positive integer, and the new tip file would have more than M commits, then instead merge the new tip with the previous tip.

Finally, if --expire-time=<datetime> is not specified, let datetime be the current time. After writing the split commit-graph, delete all unused commit-graph whose modified times are older than datetime.

read

Read the commit-graph file and output basic details about it. Used for debugging purposes.

verify

Read the commit-graph file and verify its contents against the object database. Used to check for corrupted data.

With the --shallow option, only check the tip commit-graph file in a chain of split commit-graphs.

 

EXAMPLES

• Write a commit-graph file for the packed commits in your local .git directory.

$ git commit-graph write

• Write a commit-graph file, extending the current commit-graph file using commits in <pack-index>.

$ echo <pack-index> | git commit-graph write --stdin-packs

• Write a commit-graph file containing all reachable commits.

$ git show-ref -s | git commit-graph write --stdin-commits

• Write a commit-graph file containing all commits in the current commit-graph file along with those reachable from HEAD.

$ git rev-parse HEAD | git commit-graph write --stdin-commits --append

• Read basic information from the commit-graph file.

$ git commit-graph read
