GIT-PACK-REDUNDANT(1)             Git Manual             GIT-PACK-REDUNDANT(1)

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.
