The git log view is very slow. It takes about 15 seconds. Commandline git is instantaneous.

Is jgit just as slow or is this an artefact of the way we're using the repository?
Comment 3 Alan McGovern 2012-01-16 08:14:22 UTC
jgit have a bunch of commits recently which look like they should improve this area significantly. I'll look into this in more detail when we bump ngit to contain those revs.

What repository were you using to test the speed of git log?

We have bumped our supported version of NGit and made some other performance related improvements so I would love it if you could test again. I've tried viewing the log for a bunch of files and they all take approximately 2 seconds to view. Git blame is equally fast.

This is fast now, closing this issue.
