Cloning a huge git repo ends with a timeout

Hi community,

our git-repository got a little bit bigger (4,2GB instead of 3,9GB) and since that we are getting following error when Fisheye tries to clone the repository:

Unable to clone remote repository: ssh:// - [Cloning into bare repository 'clone'..., , Received disconnect from 2: User session has timed out idling after 600000 ms., fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly]

It looks like 10 minutes are not enought to proceed with the actual cloning.

How can i extend this 600000 timeout?

Git command timeout can be configured via Administration > Repository >> SCM Details >> Git Options section >> Command Timeout.

It's 1 hour by default though, which makes me wonder why the command times out after 10 minutes in your case. Did you by any chance modify default timeout value? 


Best Regards,

Mikolaj Zyromski (Fisheye/Crucible Dev Team)
