My gilab's repository is 700MB of length... Is Normal!?

My project has 700MB of files, is it normal? Locally it only has 50MB … And it’s taking too long to make the clone …

Describe your question in as much detail as possible:

  • What are you seeing, and how does it differ from what you expect to see?
  • Consider including screenshots, error messages, and/or other helpful visuals
  • What version are you on (Hint: /help) ? and are you using self-managed or
  • What troubleshooting steps have you already taken? Can you link to any docs or other resources so we know where you have been?

Thanks for taking the time to be thorough in your request, it really helps! :blush:


when you say too long can you please share the shell output? Best with a preceeding time command to measure its time. I’m also interested in git’s output itself.

time git clone https://...yourrepo.git 

In terms of the repository size: This includes the repository itself and all linked LFS objects. These objects are stored on the server and show a higher number than a local du -sh for instance.
