    Default 4 Instances of systemd-coredump

    I have 4 instances of systemd-coredump running that keep changing pid's and are using most of my cpu. What would be causing this, and how do I resolve this?

    Code:

    I don't use gnome myself, but a likely contender for the core dumps is "tracker", I believe it's well known for it

    What does
    Code:
    sudo coredumpctl list
    show...

    or alternatively have a look in "/var/lib/systemd/coredump".

    Hi
    Open a terminal and kill it off with;
    Code:
    tracker reset -r

    That works! Am I going to have to make this a crontab job? Does this kill tracker, or just restart it, and are other applications going to have issues with traker being reset?

    Hi
    Depends if your wanting to use the feature or not? If you go to Settings -> Search and Indexing and under 'Locations' tab and remove all the listed directories and then apply, go to the 'System' tab and remove all the indexes. See how that goes when you restart the system....

    Depending on your journal requirements, I would suggest as root user running;
    Code:
    journalctl --vacuum-time=2d
    Should clean them all up... the other option is to remove tracker completely...

    Hi
    Seems a better option is running;
    Code:
    tracker daemon -k
    A fix is coming... just slow (sent a chaser to my SUSE contacts) for
    https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1017652

    I created an autostart file to run on login...

    I have this problem now on my laptop running an up-to-date Leap 42.3, and I show no updates applied or pending for tracker. Can this get kicked up a notch for 42.3 again, please?

    if you don't want to uninstall tracker, but wait for an update I resolved the issue this way by gleaning a single suggestion from the bug report:

    Code:
    d3vnull@kvm:~> crontab -l
    # DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE - edit the master and reinstall.
    # (/tmp/crontab.LJpFwJ installed on Sun Apr 29 13:30:57 2018)
    # (Cronie version 4.2)
    */1 * * * * /home/d3vnull/bin/core.sh
    
    d3vnull@kvm:~> cat ~/bin/core.sh 
    #!/bin/bash
    ps aux|grep -v grep|grep -v core.sh|grep core &>/dev/null
    if [  ! $? ]
    then
     gnome-control-center -l &>/dev/null
    fi
