       git-diagnose - Generate a zip archive of diagnostic information


       git diagnose [(-o | --output-directory) <path>] [(-s | --suffix) <format>]


       Collects detailed information about the user's machine, Git client, and
       repository state and packages that information into a zip archive. The
       generated archive can then, for example, be shared with the Git mailing
       list to help debug an issue or serve as a reference for independent

       By default, the following information is captured in the archive:

       o   git version --build-options

       o   The path to the repository root

       o   The available disk space on the filesystem

       o   The name and size of each packfile, including those in alternate
           object stores

       o   The total count of loose objects, as well as counts broken down by
           .git/objects subdirectory

       Additional information can be collected by selecting a different
       diagnostic mode using the --mode option.

       This tool differs from git-bugreport(1) in that it collects much more
       detailed information with a greater focus on reporting the size and
       data shape of repository contents.


       -o <path>, --output-directory <path>
           Place the resulting diagnostics archive in <path> instead of the
           current directory.

       -s <format>, --suffix <format>
           Specify an alternate suffix for the diagnostics archive name, to
           create a file named git-diagnostics-<formatted-suffix>. This should
           take the form of a strftime(3) format string; the current local
           time will be used.

           Specify the type of diagnostics that should be collected. The
           default behavior of git diagnose is equivalent to --mode=stats.

           The --mode=all option collects everything included in --mode=stats,
           as well as copies of .git, .git/hooks, .git/info, .git/logs, and
           .git/objects/info directories. This additional information may be
           sensitive, as it can be used to reconstruct the full contents of
           the diagnosed repository. Users should exercise caution when
           sharing an archive generated with --mode=all.
