I have a remote git repo, with some branches,for instance:master、feature/branchA、feature/branchB.

Like the master branch, the feature/branchB branch has several small files.The difference between the master branch and feature/branchA is that feature/branchA has a large file, about 90M.
I use jgit to manage local branches.I first clone all branches from my remote repo,like this:
        System.out.println("=========== start clone =============");
        Git git = Git.cloneRepository()
                .setDirectory(new File(clonedDir))
        System.out.println("=========== clone success =============");

then, I need to checkout between the three branches,like this:
               // whether local exist the branchName
               boolean flag = localBranchIsExist(branchName);
                if (flag) {
                    System.out.println("create local branch: " + branchName);
                            .setStartPoint("origin/" + branchName)
                } else {
                    System.out.println(branchName + " branch already exist!");

my question is :According to my practice,when i am at master branch,icheckout to feature/branchB, same as the master,it just cost a little time;but when i am at master branch ,thencheckout to feature/branchA, it cost a long time,about one minute,because feature/branchA has a big file(90M)? Or maybe my checkout code is wrong? Can anyone help me?Thank you!

Try to increase core.streamFileThreshold to a size larger than your largest versioned file.
By default this threshold is 50MiB.
You may also want to check the max. Java heap size you configured.

On a side note it's not a good idea to store huge (probably binary) files in git. It's not designed
for general purpose data storage but for versioning source code (text).
