NAME

git-pack-redundant - Find redundant pack files  

SYNOPSIS

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

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 -f3 | git-pack-redundant --all | xargs rm  

OPTIONS

--all

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

--alt-odb

Don't 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.
