Praefect Rake tasks (FREE SELF)

Introduced in GitLab 12.10.

Rake tasks are available for projects that have been created on Praefect storage. See the Praefect documentation for information on configuring Praefect.

Replica checksums

gitlab:praefect:replicas prints out checksums of the repository of a given project_id on:

  • The primary Gitaly node.
  • Secondary internal Gitaly nodes.

Run this Rake task on the node that GitLab is installed and not on the node that Praefect is installed.

  • Linux package installations:

    sudo gitlab-rake "gitlab:praefect:replicas[project_id]"
  • Self-compiled installations:

    sudo -u git -H bundle exec rake "gitlab:praefect:replicas[project_id]" RAILS_ENV=production
