git‐verify‐pack − Validate packed Git archive files



git verify−pack [−v|−−verbose] [−s|−−stat−only] [−−] <pack>.idx ...




Reads given idx file for packed Git archive created with the
git pack−objects command and verifies idx file and the
corresponding pack file.



     <pack>.idx ...
     The idx files to verify.

     −v, −−verbose
     After verifying the pack, show list of objects
     contained in the pack and a histogram of delta chain
     length.

     −s, −−stat−only
     Do not verify the pack contents; only show the
     histogram of delta chain length. With −−verbose, list
     of objects is also shown.

     −−
     Do not interpret any more arguments as options.



When specifying the −v option the format used is:

     SHA−1 type size size−in−packfile offset−in−packfile

for objects that are not deltified in the pack, and

     SHA−1 type size size−in−packfile offset−in−packfile depth base−SHA−1

for objects that are deltified.
