Thanks. I've been running this at work and as noted in
https://public-inbox.org/git/87vadpxv27.fsf@evledraar.gmail.com/ it's
had big performance impact to the better, users even started noticing it
(they'd previously get noticeable slowdowns while doing other task on
GC).

I also tried to see just how much worse this was making performance, my
hunch was that the difference should be trivial but noticeable since
we'll produce a less efficient pack.

What I found was the opposite, under real-world conditions it seems to
be making things 1-2% better on common git operations, which I suspect
is because once we've done a few pulls and coalesced those into their
own pack(s) there's more cache locality for the data we're actually
looking at.

I.e. once you've got a repo has a big pack you're not touching, and a
few weeks of updates from upstream that you've coalesced into another
pack there's a higher density of stuff you care about near HEAD per FS
page in the recent smaller pack, which if you're pressed for memory and
parts of your pack are getting paged out of the FS cache is a win. I
haven't confirmed that, it's just a hypothesis.

The only (trivial) issue I found in the patches themselves was that
between 4/5 and 5/7 you're adding an empty line to config.txt in 4/7
just to erase it in 5/7, better not to add it to begin with, but
hopefully Junio can fix that up (if he cares).

I do care but I'd wish I do not have to waste time and concentration to spend
on doing so, even though I would be fully capable of skipping this round and
remembering to queue a rerolled one.

I've seen mentions like the above one a few times on the list recently, so let
me make it clear. Some things are easier to tweak locally than others, and
I'd rather not to waste my time on cleaning other people's mess. A simple
typofix that does not cascade through to later steps in a series is one thing.
A tweak that changes number of lines in a hunk that forces a later step to
compensate is more involved.

Don't expect your traffic cop to wash your care while you're stopping at a
red signal.

Fixed (and is the only change in v2) in case Junio has not picked up
the last round and fixed it himself yet.

We allow to keep existing packs by having companion .keep files. This
is helpful when a pack is permanently kept. In the next patch, git-gc
just wants to keep a pack temporarily, for one pack-objects
run. git-gc can use --keep-pack for this use case.

A note about why the pack_keep field cannot be reused and
pack_keep_in_core has to be added. This is about the case when
--keep-pack is specified together with either --keep-unreachable or
--unpack-unreachable, but --honor-pack-keep is NOT specified.

In this case, we want to exclude objects from the packs specified on
command line, not from ones with .keep files. If only one bit flag is
used, we have to clear pack_keep on pack files with the .keep file.

But we can't make any assumption about unreachable objects in .keep
packs. If "pack_keep" field is false for .keep packs, we could
potentially pull lots of unreachable objects into the new pack, or
unpack them loose. The safer approach is ignore all packs with either
.keep file or --keep-pack.

This adds a new repack mode that combines everything into a secondary
pack, leaving the largest pack alone.

This could help reduce memory pressure. On linux-2.6.git, valgrind
massif reports 1.6GB heap in "pack all" case, and 535MB in "pack
all except the base pack" case. We save roughly 1GB memory by
excluding the base pack.

This should also lower I/O because we don't have to rewrite a giant
pack every time (e.g. for linux-2.6.git that's a 1.4GB pack file)..

PS. The use of string_list here seems overkill, but we'll need it in
the next patch...

The --keep-largest-pack option is not very convenient to use because
you need to tell gc to do this explicitly (and probably on just a few
large repos).

Add a config key that enables this mode when packs larger than a limit
are found. Note that there's a slight behavior difference compared to
--keep-largest-pack: all packs larger than the threshold are kept, not
just the largest one.

This config allows us to keep <N> packs back if their size is larger
than a limit. But if this N >= gc.autoPackLimit, we may have a
problem. We are supposed to reduce the number of packs after a
threshold because it affects performance.

We could tell the user that they have incompatible gc.bigPackThreshold
and gc.autoPackLimit, but it's kinda hard when 'git gc --auto' runs in
background. Instead let's fall back to the next best stategy: try to
reduce the number of packs anyway, but keep the base pack out. This
reduces the number of packs to two and hopefully won't take up too
much resources to repack (the assumption still is the base pack takes
most resources to handle).

pack-objects could be a big memory hog especially on large repos,
everybody knows that. The suggestion to stick a .keep file on the
giant base pack to avoid this problem is also known for a long time.

Recent patches add an option to do just this, but it has to be either
configured or activated manually. This patch lets `git gc --auto`
activate this mode automatically when it thinks `repack -ad` will use
a lot of memory and start affecting the system due to swapping or
flushing OS cache.

gc --auto decides to do this based on an estimation of pack-objects
memory usage, which is quite accurate at least for the heap part, and
whether that fits in half of system memory (the assumption here is for
desktop environment where there are many other applications running).

This mechanism only kicks in if gc.bigBasePackThreshold is not configured.
If it is, it is assumed that the user already knows what they want.

We only show progress when there are new objects to be packed. But
when --keep-pack is specified on the base pack, we will exclude most
of objects. This makes 'pack-objects' stay silent for a long time
while the counting phase is going.

Let's show some progress whenever we visit an object instead. The old
"Counting objects" is renamed to "Enumerating objects" and a new
progress "Counting objects" line is added.

This new "Counting objects" line should progress pretty quick when the
system is beefy. But when the system is under pressure, the reading
object header done in this phase could be slow and showing progress is
an improvement over staying silent in the current code.
