Thread: tracker-miner-fs resource usage

  1. #1

    Default tracker-miner-fs resource usage

    Hey all, I am brand new to openSUSE, but not to Linux. I have been a heavy user of .deb-based distros for the past few years, and have just decided to give openSUSE a try due to the stellar KDE experience. (I dislike the newest gnome iteration)

    Anyways, I seem to be having a problem with a process called "tracker-miner-fs". Every time I boot up, this process instantly consumes around 10% of the CPU and another 4 GB of memory held privately! And it continues to do so the whole time the machine is on. Just now, I noticed the machine has started using SWAP space due to low memory, even though I have 6 GBs installed!

    I've tried looking this up online, but have not really found anything useful about what to do.

    Welcome here.

    We would like to know (allways) which version of openSUSE this is about. When you are fast, you can post this before the new year for many of us.

    tracker is a gnome service, I wonder why you have it running. It is a
    file content indexer, and it is configurable (in gnome) what files it
    looks at and where, and how many resources it claims.

    Run "tracker-preferences" and adjust it.

    This is interesting because this i a fresh install of openSUSE. Tracker-miner-fs must have been installed from the original CD

    Also, your suggestions was unsuccessful:
    If 'tracker-preferences' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this:
    cnf tracker-preferences

    you may need to do this

    Code:
     sudo zypper in tracker-gui
    before running tracker-preferences

    Also i don't know whether it will break your desktop. you may remove tracker from your system using YaST

    Using YaST > Sopftware > Softyware management, I see six tracker-miner-... packages and the package libtracker-miner-0... None is installed on my openSUSE 12.2 KDE Thus I guess it is not done so by default.

    It advertises itself btw in the comment of the packages as:
    Tracker is a powerful desktop-neutral first class object database, tag/metadata database, search tool and indexer.
    and as such shouldn't be typical Gnome.

    Interesting.
    There must be something installed from gnome that I can not guess.

    But careful, it might want to remove something else, whatever it is that
    needs tracker.

    But I understand that KDE has its own search engine, so kde users would
    get both running if tracker is installed.

    Yup tracker is a worthy successor for beagle :-)
