Subject: Holding on to deleted packfiles
Date: Tue, 21 Sep 2021 10:47:54 -0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210921144754.gulkneuulzo27qbw@meerkat.local> (raw)


A large git repack job that ran over the weekend revealed a minor problem --
public-inbox daemon processes will hold on to deleted pack files until they
are restarted. Is there any way to gracefully recognize and handle this
condition? It's not quite benign, as this ended up keeping 40GB+ worth of
inodes from being released.
