I am using org.eclipse.jgit(vesrion my java application.
If the remote repository is huge then it takes a long time to pull the files in my local repository, around 5-6 minutes.

I already cloned git repository in my local machine. After some times(2-3 hours) I hit pull process it takes a long time to finish the process even though nothing new in the git repo. Once pull is done and again If I hit pull, it works fine.
Clone is also taking time but that is fine because that is huge repo to clone for the first time.

Note: I am using an SSH connection to perform all git operations.

Could you review below code to see pull logic in my application and help me resolve the issue?

FileRepositoryBuilder builder = new FileRepositoryBuilder();
Repository repository =builder.setWorkTree(sourceFolderFile).readEnvironment().build();

Git git = new Git(repository);


if (config.getGitHubConnectionType().equalsIgnoreCase("ssh")) {
      GitSSHConfigSessionFactory sshSessionFactory = new GitSSHConfigSessionFactory(config.getGitHubPrivateKeyFilePath(),config.getGitHubPassphrase(),String.valueOf(config.getGitStrictHostKeyCheck()));
     git.pull().setTransportConfigCallback(new TransportConfigCallback() {
           public void configure(Transport transport) {
                                        SshTransport sshTransport = (SshTransport) transport;

Maybe if you displayed the PullResult that might give you an idea why it sometimes takes long. Maybe it has to pull a lot.

You also seem to be using your own SSH session factory, maybe something is wrong in there.

Thanks Thomas,
If we updated just 1 file in git remote repository. It also takes much time to finish the pull operation. Even, some times it got stuck for whole day.
Pull should not take more than a minute to pull 1 small file. Repo could be bigger but after cloning pull should not take much time for 1 small file.

If anyone has some idea please put here. I am so fed up with this jgit pull. It's working fine with ndoe git

- first of all you should update to the latest jgit release 4.11 is pretty outdated and 4.11.0 is not the latest service release for 4.11.x which would be 4.11.8
- git pull involves multiple phases, in the first phase client and server negotiate which objects need to be sent, in the second phase the server creates a pack containing these objects and sends it over to the client which then stores them in the repository, updates the working tree and merges that into the respective local branch. Already the first phase can create considerable load for a large repository. If any of the involved repository has a lot of loose objects or refs (if gc wasn't run for a long time) this could slow down the operation) this comes on top
- which max heap size did you configure on the client side ?
- when the operation is stuck create a thread dump e.g. using jstack, it will reveal where the operation is stuck, post that here and I can have a look
