Two things you could consider:

1. You could use git repack to transfer less files without losing the abili=
ty of incremental updates.
2. You could turn off sync-after-close in the cache manager, see fs storebe=
hind. This should increase upfront performance but may degrade again, shoul=
d your cache run out of file handles. So, you'd have to play with cache par=
ameters, as well.

Kind regards,
