comment How to provide external access to only the Git projects (clone/pull/push) of an internal GitLab deployment
The naive solution was tried, yes! :-) We made it somehow work, but had to use the same "server name" (hostname) for the internal and external access use. However, I never managed to limit the location to only the *.git/* path. If you know how to do it, you're welcome.

comment What “access rights” could be blocking access to a gitlab repository?
I had the same problem as Caleb, and I also found by myself that to make it work one need to set a shell instead of /bin/{false,true,nologin}. But actually the user is created without shell on purpose during installation (see: gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-ce/blob/master/doc/install/…) sudo adduser --disabled-login --gecos 'GitLab' git. So it ought to work without a shell. I'm still looking for another solution.

comment slow copy due to disk write issue
@shantanuo is a UPS not possible in your case? With the disk cache reactivated, could you provide the info asked in the 3rd comment?

comment slow copy due to disk write issue
@shantanuo disabling write caching can have a non predictable effect on application depending on the "write profile" they have. So this is not depending on the OS (here CentOS) but on the type of update that the application performs. Why would you disable "write cache"? the only scenario I can think of is that your HDD are in RAID but without a battery-backed RAID controller.

comment slow copy due to disk write issue
I am not sure I understand your last comment @shantanuo. Did you disable the "write cache" of your HDD? Or are you referering to my command using drop_caches? If you disabled the "write cache" of the disks (so that the disk does not use its internal read/write buffer) then of course this has an adverse effect on performance.

comment Measuring disk usage
I don't know what is "fair". But if someones does lots of small random reads, he could saturate the capacity of the storage in terms of IO, eventhough that he might reads less MBytes than a user reading a big chunk of contiguous data. What you want to bill and what you want to "limit" to keep all of your users happy is a commercial decision in the end, for which I have no particular thinking.
