git verify-pack -v .git/objects/pack/*.idx | sort -r -k 3 -n | head -10
For active repositories, you can search by id in http(s)://[your-hostname]/stafftools . For deleted ("archived") repositories, you have to use the console. For example:
$ echo 'Archived::Repository.find(1496).name_with_owner' | ghe-console -y
Deleted repositories are automatically purged from disk after three months, but you can delete an archived repository immediately in the console by running:
$ echo 'Archived::Repository.find(1496).purge' | ghe-console -y

Print shell commands to delete git tags older than a year
View print_commits_with_git_tags.rb
# Before deleting all those tags, you may want to record which commits they tagged...just in case...
# This is slightly tricky, because annotated tags have at least *two* SHAS: one that constitutes tag
# itself, and one that is the SHA being tagged. The rev-list command gets at the latter.
# See EXAMPLES section of for more on making format a full-fledged script.
