git-count-objects - Count unpacked number of objects and their disk consumption


'git count-objects' [-v] [-H | --human-readable]


This counts the number of unpacked object files and disk space consumed by them, to help you decide when it is a good time to repack.



Report in more detail:

count: the number of loose objects

size: disk space consumed by loose objects, in KiB (unless -H is specified)

in-pack: the number of in-pack objects

size-pack: disk space consumed by the packs, in KiB (unless -H is specified)

prune-packable: the number of loose objects that are also present in the packs. These objects could be pruned using git prune-packed.

garbage: the number of files in object database that are not valid loose objects nor valid packs

size-garbage: disk space consumed by garbage files, in KiB (unless -H is specified)
