If I understand correctly what you're asking for, the most reliable way is to read the modification date of the .git/FETCH_HEAD file.

This SW thread has more precisions:

There's a challenge that i'm currently facing after migration from WINCVS to GIT. The problem here is I need to pull/fetch a specific branch (and NOT clone the entire repository) from the repository to a particular location on the AIX server.

Earlier while using WINCVS this functionality was achievable using JCVSExport package as we could just checkout a particular branch and fetch the package on to the server location.
WINCVS Command : java JCVSExport -h -u abcde -p xxxxxx -d /abcd/cvs/testing -c "$REPOSITORY" -m "$PACKAGE"

I am not able to achieve the same functionality using GIT. I DO NOT want to clone the entire repository on the AIX server instead I just want to fetch/pull a specific branch contents on the server. Can someone please help me out with the solution or any possible way with which I can achieve the same functionality.

The use case:
"git submodule update" seems to be inefficient when running sequentially on a large .gitmodules file. Assuming a git forest with over 7K gits it takes hours to complete the update (running on Windows+Cygwin)

If not supported, this feature could be a good candidate for "git submodule" enhancement.
