The default prompt proposed on the ULHPC clusters feature a
__git_ps1 call which mentioned in your prompt line the current branch.
Moreover, by default, dirty states are reported via a set of
$> sift GIT_PS1 ~/.bashrc| grep -v \#
This comes at a non negligible cost which might be prohibitive when navigating within big git repositories.
To disable it:
# Local disabling (current repository)
git config bash.showDirtyState false
# Globally disable it
git config --global bash.showDirtyState false
