Repository Storage Rake Tasks

This is a collection of rake tasks you can use to help you list and migrate existing projects and attachments associated with it from Legacy storage to the new Hashed storage type.

You can read more about the storage types here.

Migrate existing projects to Hashed storage

Before migrating your existing projects, you should enable hashed storage for the new projects as well.

This task will schedule all your existing projects and attachments associated with it to be migrated to the Hashed storage type:

Omnibus Installation

gitlab-rake gitlab:storage:migrate_to_hashed

Source Installation

rake gitlab:storage:migrate_to_hashed

You can monitor the progress in the Admin > Monitoring > Background jobs screen. There is a specific Queue you can watch to see how long it will take to finish: project_migrate_hashed_storage

After it reaches zero, you can confirm every project has been migrated by running the commands bellow. If you find it necessary, you can run this migration script again to schedule missing projects.

Any error or warning will be logged in the sidekiq's log file.

You only need the gitlab:storage:migrate_to_hashed rake task to migrate your repositories, but we have additional commands below that helps you inspect projects and attachments in both legacy and hashed storage.
