Using a Geo Server

After you set up the database replication and configure the Geo nodes, use your closest GitLab node as you would a normal standalone GitLab instance.

Pushing directly to a secondary node (for both HTTP, SSH including git-lfs) was introduced in GitLab Premium 11.3.

Example of the output you will see when pushing to a secondary node:

$ git push
> GitLab: You're pushing to a Geo secondary.
> GitLab: We'll help you by proxying this request to the primary: ssh://git@primary.geo/user/repo.git
