ian.fischer.winreality Posted January 27 Report Share Posted January 27 We have been trying to use GitSync to work and it will not finish after many attempts with fast-export that kept failing. We have a very large repository at some 400+ GB, and each time we get to the "Packaging... 0/576226" it just sits there and does not continue without error even after letting it run for a 12+ hours it remains at 0/576226 progress. Because Git cloud providers do not have plans for repositories that are larger than 400 GB, we planned to first perform the export into a local Git repository, then prune history items, mark items for LFS, and find an external LFS hosting location like AWS to get our repository to an acceptable size. We tried first using Git daemon to expose a Git URL for GitSync to push to git daemon --base-path=. --export-all --reuseaddr --informative-errors --verbose --enable=receive-pack It would then take about 4-5 hours performing the "Exporting..." stage and then get to Packaging and not do anything else. Looking at the logs in %LOCALAPPDATA%\plastic4\logs\cm.log.txt at the end of the Plastic GitSync "Exporting..." phase it finishes registering all the branches to push, and then the tags, and then it says it purges connection to local (which I am assuming it means it is disconnecting from the local Plastic repo to then send the packed results to the Git repo but not for sure). It then just logs info about it's "BUFFER POOL CONFIG" every 30 minutes for over 12+ hours. We contacted support who told us that Git daemon was not as performant as a full Git server and that what was going wrong. We then setup a local hosted GitLab server on a Linux machine with full ssh support. We experimented with smaller Plastic SCM repositories and they all completed without any issues and we were able to view them in the private hosted GitLab browser and all the appropriate history. When attempting to now do the GitSync to this full Git server the same issue occurred. It still took the same 4-5 hours in it's "Exporting..." phase but hung at 0/576226 progress in the "Packing..." phase and could never get to the "Sending..." phase at all. Is there any known reasons why Plastic will not make progress during the "Packaging..." phase? What are some alternative solutions that might be better to export our Plastic SCM repo to a Git repo?
