1 index.recordEndOfIndexEntries::
2 Specifies whether the index file should include an "End Of Index
3 Entry" section. This reduces index load time on multiprocessor
4 machines but produces a message "ignoring EOIE extension" when
5 reading the index using Git versions before 2.20. Defaults to
6 'true' if index.threads has been explicitly enabled, 'false'
7 otherwise.
8
9 index.recordOffsetTable::
10 Specifies whether the index file should include an "Index Entry
11 Offset Table" section. This reduces index load time on
12 multiprocessor machines but produces a message "ignoring IEOT
13 extension" when reading the index using Git versions before 2.20.
14 Defaults to 'true' if index.threads has been explicitly enabled,
15 'false' otherwise.
16
17 index.threads::
18 Specifies the number of threads to spawn when loading the index.
19 This is meant to reduce index load time on multiprocessor machines.
20 Specifying 0 or 'true' will cause Git to auto-detect the number of
21 CPU's and set the number of threads accordingly. Specifying 1 or
22 'false' will disable multithreading. Defaults to 'true'.
23
24 index.version::
25 Specify the version with which new index files should be
26 initialized. This does not affect existing repositories.
27 If `feature.manyFiles` is enabled, then the default is 4.
