I tried to place a 1G binary file in my repository and noticed that this actually makes pijul unusable. When calling pijul record:

  • memory footprint is >50 GB.
  • CPU usage is 100% for 3 minutes until process gets killed.

pijul --vesion says: pijul 0.10.1

This is almost certainly because of our diff algorithm. We are going to change it soon, thanks for reporting.
