What is :Building clean patch for VCS root:" doing?

What exactly is Building clean patch for VCS root: doing? We are seeing a large variance in the time this is taking, even up to 1.5 hours. The only thing I can figure is when we are forced to restart the machine that this resides on, it usually does not gracefully shut down. Is it then forcing a rebuild of some large cache of all files and revisions of files?

Clean patch is the same as export of all of the files from VCS repository. Usually if source code exists on the agent TeamCity sends incremental source code updates. But sometimes incremental update is not possible, and in this case full export (or clean patch) is sent. You can read about reasons why clean checkout can occur in our documentation: http://confluence.jetbrains.com/display/TCD8/Clean+Checkout
