[closed] RTC and GIT Integration: problem of the remote end hung up, during the cloning projects

Hi all,

I've problems when I try to clone a GIT project that is of medium size in mb (ca 300 MB).
I'm using RTC 6.0.2 and GIT with Nodejs integration.
I always receive the following maessages:
error: RPC failed; curl 52 Empty reply from server
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly
Instead I've no problem during a push, to the remote server, of the entire project.

Many thanks in advance

Hi Alberto,

Find the links below:

1) set the value (--max-old-space-size) to 8GB:

2) Double the value postBuffer to 1048576000

3) Change the below settings in nodejs (config.json) file.

"Server-Socket-Timeout" : 0,

Did you see any error in ccm.log?
Looking the error message, the issue looks like a Git problem which can be resolved by changing the postBuffer.
Searching the error by Google, you could find the solution mentioned below:

Hi Lily,

thanks a lot.
I've asked you some more details in my question below.

Hi Lily,
thanks you.

In ccm.log I have seen no errors.

I've tried all you have advice me (links to git problems solutions), also in the previous days:
1) I can't use SSH, because I can't permit the access to the Repo Server: otherwise I'll not use the RTC profiling authentication;
2) the http.postBuffer does not solve my problem, that seems to be more related to a timeout connection and the inability to reconnect again.

I try to resume my situation:
a. I've set the GIT RTC integration (how it's descibed in the officicial documentation for RTC 6.0.2):
 - RTC 6.0.2
 - GIT 2.11.1
 - Python 2.7
 - Nodejs 0.12.9
 - Git-Server-Toolkit-6.0.2
 - my environment is set up on a RHEL 6.2 Linux server
b. I can Push repos that have medium size in MB (ca 300MB);
c. I can't clone repos, via http, that have medium size in MB (ca 300MB);
d. I can clone repos, via ssh, on the Repo server itself, that have medium size in MB (ca 300MB);
e. I can clone repos , via http, that have medium size in MB (ca 300MB), if I use Apache http server, but the new RTC GIT integration uses Nodejs (new hooks are recompiled ad hoc).

So, I could think that:
- or Nodejs has some size limits in download and not in not in upload
- or Git-Server-Toolkit-6.0.2 doesn't work properly

Maybe I should try to open a PMR?
Many Thanks

I suggest you open a PMR in such case. I will also have a test in my environment.

Hi Lily,

Please, let me know the results in your environment.
Ciao and best regards

I am having a weird issue with Visual Studio for Mac. Have a look at the image below:


For some reason, the tiny little preview screen tile appears randomly when I hover over a tab (and this is not consistent but it happens randomly) and it then freezes everything by covering the editor with blue shaded cover. This makes the entire editor unusable and I have to restart the IDE to resume.

This is so disappointing that VS for Mac has always caused me random issues and has never been a stable IDE for me. Earlier it used to crash a lot and now this super annoying issue is killing my productivity.

Kindly look into it and fix it soon as it really hampers the productivity.
