Hello,

We are seeing issue with GIT 2.14 version. When we try to clone the repos, it is taking HUGE amount of time on HPUX, whereas on the linux machine with same network configuration, it's getting cloned in less than mins. So we want to know has anyone reported this issue? What is the fix for this? Has the fix been released for this? Whom should we contact for this? 

Thanks & Regards,
Ibrahim Vanak

Below is the HPUX system where we are seeing issue, it is taking 1 hr 45 mins and later it failed:

I don't know about the slowness, but...

Git v2.14 uses the sha1collision-detection implementation of sha1 by
default. That has a bug that was fixed recently with:

  commit 4125f78222749cb8fc91115abec3ac83e5dfb194
  Author: Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason <avarab@gmail.com>
  Date:   Tue May 14 00:17:01 2019 +0200
  
      sha1dc: update from upstream
      
      Update sha1dc from the latest version by the upstream
      maintainer[1]. See 07a20f569b ("Makefile: fix unaligned loads in
      sha1dc with UBSan", 2019-03-12) for the last update.
      
      This fixes an issue where HP-UX IA64 was wrongly detected as a
      Little-endian instead of a Big-endian system, see [2] and [3].
      
      1. https://github.com/cr-marcstevens/sha1collisiondetection/commit/855827c583bc30645ba427885caa40c5b81764d2
      2. https://public-inbox.org/git/603989bd-f86d-c61d-c6f5-fb6748a65ba9@siemens.com/
      3. https://github.com/cr-marcstevens/sha1collisiondetection/pull/50

which looks like it would impact your system. You can either:

  1. Try v2.22.0-rc1, which will be the first release with that fix.

  2. Try cherry-picking the various fixes on top of v2.14.0:

       git checkout v2.14.0
       git cherry-pick 23e37f8e9d5961c0c8d52ac481693d3fca5309ce
       git cherry-pick 07a20f569b4b1690e717eaac0954007a8edfbfc2
       git cherry-pick 4125f78222749cb8fc91115abec3ac83e5dfb194

  3. Compile with another sha1 implementation. E.g.:

       # if you have openssl available; otherwise,
       # try BLK_SHA1
       echo 'OPENSSL_SHA1 = Yes' >config.mak
       make

     Note that you won't be protected from collision attacks, but those
     are still impractically expensive to mount at this point. It may be
     a good tradeoff until you can upgrade to a more recent Git.

As a follow-up perhaps we should hash_object_file_literally() early in
main() (or maybe just clone & init) to detect this issue & exit with
some "zomg broken!".

Vanak: Also, this issue suggests whoever compiled the package you're
using (you?) installed it with a failing "make test", so a lot of other
things may be broken...

You definitely want to upgrade ASAP. Not only is the issue that you
reported fixed, but two distinct vulnerabilities have been fixed since
v2.14.0. Your version is still vulnerable.

Thanks everyone for the inputs !!! upgrade of GIT to 2.21 worked.

BUT still I have significant slowness(50 times slower than clone on linux machine) while cloning. HPUX box is having very good H/W configuration and network is also stable.

Do you have any inputs on this.?

The main things going on there are:

  1. we're getting the bytes over the network

  2. we're computing a sha1 on the stream we're getting

  3. we're zlib inflating any non-delta objects we find and computing
     their sha1

  4. we're checking the filesystem to see if we have other copies of any
     of those objects

For (2) and (3) it could be that the sha1 implementation is not quite as
fast. But 50x is much larger than I'd expect. If you've built Git from
source, you could try running "t/helper/test-sha1 <big-file" and timing
the result. That would isolate sha1 performance.  If it's slow, try
building with "make BLK_SHA1=Yes" or "make OPENSSL_SHA1=Yes" and see if
that's faster.

For (4), we'll have to stat() in .git/objects to see if we have a loose
version of the object. That can be slow if you have a really terrible
NFS setup, for example. But I doubt that would still be slow in v2.21.
There we should be using the new loose-cache which will only readdir()
the object directories once.

If neither of those pan out, it seems like the network is slow? Or maybe
ssh? Or pipes passing data from clone to index-pack?

Hello Jeff,

Thanks again for the response. 

I am not building GIT and also don't know either how to build. I am just pulling up the binaries from http://hpux.connect.org.uk/. 

Both HPUX and linux machine are in same network/subnet so network shouldn't be a problem here. ssh to HPUX box is super quick and box is having very high configuration. There is no NFS involved here.

I am surprised on slowness.... If you get a chance to look more into this, please.

Thanks & Regards,
Ibrahim Vanak

Hello Jeff,

Just sharing more information with you on this issue:

After cloning when I tried to checkout a branch on HPUX and Linux, I still significant time difference there as well even though network is not involve here. Do you suspect anything with HPUX OS? Do you have any mechanism to find out who is the causing gigantic delay ?

========================================
Checkout of a branch on HPUX as below
========================================
root@fiend6.in.rdlabs.hpecorp.net# time git checkout remotes/origin/11.23/sfm_1123_main
Checking out files: 100% (12949/12949), done.
Note: checking out 'remotes/origin/11.23/sfm_1123_main'.

You are in 'detached HEAD' state. You can look around, make experimental

Hello Jeff,

Thanks again for the response. 

I am not building GIT and also don't know either how to build. I am just pulling up the binaries from http://hpux.connect.org.uk/. 

Both HPUX and linux machine are in same network/subnet so network shouldn't be a problem here. ssh to HPUX box is super quick and box is having very high configuration. There is no NFS involved here.

I am surprised on slowness.... If you get a chance to look more into this, please.

Thanks & Regards,
Ibrahim Vanak

The main things going on there are:

  1. we're getting the bytes over the network

  2. we're computing a sha1 on the stream we're getting

  3. we're zlib inflating any non-delta objects we find and computing
     their sha1

  4. we're checking the filesystem to see if we have other copies of any
     of those objects

For (2) and (3) it could be that the sha1 implementation is not quite as fast. But 50x is much larger than I'd expect. If you've built Git from source, you could try running "t/helper/test-sha1 <big-file" and timing the result. That would isolate sha1 performance.  If it's slow, try building with "make BLK_SHA1=Yes" or "make OPENSSL_SHA1=Yes" and see if that's faster.

For (4), we'll have to stat() in .git/objects to see if we have a loose version of the object. That can be slow if you have a really terrible NFS setup, for example. But I doubt that would still be slow in v2.21.
There we should be using the new loose-cache which will only readdir() the object directories once.

If neither of those pan out, it seems like the network is slow? Or maybe ssh? Or pipes passing data from clone to index-pack?

If it's happening for just a local checkout operation, I'd suspect very
poor filesystem performance. On Linux, I'd run it under "perf" to see
where the time is going. Or possibly "strace -T" to time system calls. I
don't know what tools are available under HP-UX for that kind of
profiling.

Thank Peff. Unfortunately I am living with this issue, no one able to find out what is causing this significant delay. Re-initiating this thread if someone can help on this.

Hello ALL again,

Has anyone tested the performance of GIT on HP-UX platform? Can someone please look into the issue we are seeing.

Thanks,
Ibrahim

You might try setting some of the GIT_TRACE* environment variables
listed in [1] on both your HP-UX and Linux machines and see if you
can isolate any performance differences between them.

Hello ALL,

I did try GIT_TRACE* environment variables but couldn't isolate the problem. 

But HPUX Dev team have seen one significance difference, when they were triaging this issue, the ways GIT operations handled by 2 OSs: On linux, around 40 processes are spawned for handling a GIT operation whereas on HPUX only one process manages the operation. Is there something special being written for linux on GIT code ?

Can you please have a look into this.

Thanks & Regards,
Ibrahim Vanak

On Linux (and any platform that supports pthreads), Git will do the
lstat() operations to refresh the index in parallel. See the
core.preloadIndex option (which I think defaults to true).

If you have a very high-latency lstat() and your build does not have
pthread support, that could be a significant difference.

That might be worth exploring.
