1. NAME

git-pack-redundant - Find redundant pack files

2. SYNOPSIS



git pack-redundant [ --verbose ] [ --alt-odb ] < --all | .pack filename ... >

3. DESCRIPTION



This program computes which packs in your repository are redundant. The output is suitable for piping to xargs rm if you are in the root of the repository.

git pack-redundant accepts a list of objects on standard input. Any objects given will be ignored when checking which packs are required. This makes the following command useful when wanting to remove packs which contain unreachable objects.

git fsck --full --unreachable | cut -d \*(Aq \*(Aq -f3 | \ git pack-redundant --all | xargs rm

4. OPTIONS

--all
    Processes all packs. Any filenames on the command line are ignored.

--alt-odb
    Don(cqt require objects present in packs from alternate object directories to be present in local packs.

--verbose
    Outputs some statistics to stderr. Has a small performance penalty.
