21:28 byorgey hi all, I killed a push to hub.darcs.net that was taking a long, long time and eating memory, and now I get an error "Couldn't get lock /home/darcsden/users/byorgey/​mathlesstraveled/_darcs/lock"
21:28 byorgey so (1) is there someone that can fix that for me? and (2) what are strategies for reducing time/memory usage of pushing large patches?
21:29 byorgey should I split the patch into smaller patches?
21:29 byorgey basically I had an existing directory tree with lots of stuff in it and did a darcs add -r and then darcs record -am "initial import"
21:31 byorgey looks like the resulting patch file is 78M
21:39 sm byorgey: I'll take care of 1, checking now
21:42 byorgey thanks
21:43 sm lock removed. Yeah, I think recording multiple smaller add patches will help there
21:43 sm how long did the push to hub run before you killed it ?
21:45 byorgey not sure exactly, probably about 5 minutes
21:45 byorgey and it was using ~3G of memory
21:45 sm ouch
21:45 amgarchIn9 joined #darcs
21:46 sm what local darcs version, just for reference ?
21:46 byorgey 2.8.1
21:46 byorgey any big performance improvements in 2.8.2 I should know about? =)
21:46 sm that seems abnormally large memory usage for a 78M add patch
21:47 Heffalump byorgey: no :-)
21:47 byorgey sm: yeah, I thought so too
21:47 byorgey Heffalump: ok =)
21:48 byorgey it involved adding ~500 files for what it's worth
21:48 Heffalump darcs doesn't really cope well with large adds, I'm afraid
21:48 byorgey ok, good to know
21:48 byorgey Heffalump: so do you think it would help to split it up into smaller adds?
21:48 Heffalump yes
21:48 byorgey cool
