Don't use "sscanf()" for tree mode scanning

Doing an oprofile run on the result of my git rev-list memory leak fixes
and tree parsing cleanups, I was surprised by the third-highest entry
being

samples  %        image name               app name                 symbol name
179751    2.7163  libc-2.4.so              libc-2.4.so              _IO_vfscanf@@GLIBC_2.4

where that 2.7% is actually more than 5% of one CPU, because this was run
on a dual CPU setup with the other CPU just being idle.

That seems to all be from the use of 'sscanf(tree, "%o", &mode)' for the
tree buffer parsing.

So do the trivial octal parsing by hand, which also gives us where the
first space in the string is (and thus where the pathname starts) so we
can get rid of the "strchr(tree, ' ')" call too.

This brings the "git rev-list --all --objects" time down from 63 seconds
to 55 seconds on the historical kernel archive for me, so it's quite
noticeable - tree parsing is a lot of what we end up doing when following
all the objects.

[ I also see a 5% speedup on a full "git fsck-objects" on the current

14 years agoFix memory leak in "git rev-list --objects"
Linus Torvalds [Sun, 28 May 2006 18:37:23 +0000 (11:37 -0700)]
Fix memory leak in "git rev-list --objects"

Martin Langhoff points out that "git repack -a" ends up using up a lot of
memory for big archives, and that git cvsimport probably should do only
incremental repacks in order to avoid having repacking flush all the
caches.

The big majority of the memory usage of repacking is from git rev-list
tracking all objects, and this patch should go a long way in avoiding the
excessive memory usage: the bulk of it was due to the object names being
leaked from the tree parser.

For the historic Linux kernel archive, this simple patch does:

Before:
/usr/bin/time git-rev-list --all --objects > /dev/null

72.45user 0.82system 1:13.55elapsed 99%CPU (0avgtext+0avgdata 0maxresident)k
0inputs+0outputs (0major+125376minor)pagefaults 0swaps

After:
/usr/bin/time git-rev-list --all --objects > /dev/null

75.22user 0.48system 1:16.34elapsed 99%CPU (0avgtext+0avgdata 0maxresident)k
0inputs+0outputs (0major+43921minor)pagefaults 0swaps

where we do end up wasting a bit of time on some extra strdup()s (which
could be avoided, but that would require tracking where the pathnames came
from), but we avoid a lot of memory usage.

Minor page faults track maximum RSS very closely (each page fault maps in
one page into memory), so the reduction from 125376 page faults to 43921
means a rough reduction of VM footprint from almost half a gigabyte to
about a third of that. Those numbers were also double-checked by looking
at "top" while the process was running.

(Side note: at least part of the remaining VM footprint is the mapping of
the 177MB pack-file, so the remaining memory use is at least partly "well
behaved" from a project caching perspective).

For the current git archive itself, the memory usage for a "--all
--objects" rev-list invocation dropped from 7128 pages to 2318 (27MB to
9MB), so the reduction seems to hold for much smaller projects too.

For regular "git-rev-list" usage (ie without the "--objects" flag) this
patch has no impact.

obviously has to be a git repository, but there's no reason why you'd have
to be in a local git repo when doing an ls-remote.

The reason is commit 73136b2e8a8ee024320c5ac6a0f14f912432bf03 by Dscho: it
adds calls to git-repo-config in git-parse-remote.sh to get the remote
shorthands etc.

Now, either we should just hide and ignore the error from git-repo-config

failing due to bad syntax in the config file), or we should just make
git-repo-config quietly handle the case of not being in a git repository.

This does the latter: just quietly accepting (and doing nothing - trying
to set a value will result in the lock-file failing) our lot in life
sounds better than dying with a bogus error message.
