grok-fsck - Man Page

Optimize mirrored repositories and check for corruption


grok-fsck -c /path/to/grokmirror.conf


Git repositories should be routinely repacked and checked for corruption. This utility will perform the necessary optimizations and report any problems to the email defined via fsck.report_to ('root' by default). It should run weekly from cron or from the systemd timer (see contrib).

Please examine the example grokmirror.conf file for various things you can tweak.
