The RhodeCode statistics system makes heavy demands of the server resources, so
in order to keep a balance between usability and performance, the statistics are
cached inside db and are gathered incrementally, this is how RhodeCode does
With Celery disabled
- On each first visit to the summary page a set of 250 commits are parsed and
updates statistics cache.
- This happens on each single visit to the statistics page until all commits are
fetched. Statistics are kept cached until additional commits are added to the
repository. In such a case RhodeCode will only fetch the new commits when
updating it’s cache.
With Celery enabled
- On the first visit to the summary page RhodeCode will create tasks that will
execute on celery workers. This task will gather all of the stats until all
commits are parsed, each task will parse 250 commits, and run the next task to
parse next 250 commits, until all of the commits are parsed.
At any time you can disable statistics on each repository via the repository
edit form in the admin panel. To do this just uncheck the statistics checkbox.
