Thread: Baloo file extractor has started working. Whoopee?

  1. #1

    Default Baloo file extractor has started working. Whoopee?

    I'd gotten so used to seeing baloo_file_extractor crash immediately on
    booting - and frequently thereafter - that it came as a shock to me
    when, four days ago , I got no warning pop-up after rebooting. However,
    since that fateful day, it has been using 98-100% on every one of the 12
    processor cores 24/7. This doesn't seem to have affected performance so
    I guess the 14 tags.so processes yield to others where necessary.

    Just curious as to how long this might be expected to continue.

    I kicked baloo and it's predecessor into the long grass years ago

    If you want a powerful, and very customisable search utility, take a look at recoll https://www.lesbonscomptes.com/recoll/ I've been very impressed with it's performance.

    Question Re: Baloo file extractor has started working. Whoopee?

    @Cloddy:

    What happens when, you use my “clean the Baloo Stygian stables” script?
    Code:
     > cat bin/KDE_clean_baloo_before_Plasma_start.sh
    #!/bin/bash
    #
    # Clean Baloo …
    #
    if [[ -f ~/.local/share/baloo/dateLastCleaned ]]
    then
      declare -i BalooLastDate
      BalooLastDate="$(cat ~/.local/share/baloo/dateLastCleaned)"
      declare -i TwoDaysAgo
      TwoDaysAgo="$(date --date='2 days ago' +%Y%m%d)"
      if (( $BalooLastDate < $TwoDaysAgo ))
      then
        /usr/bin/balooctl stop
        /usr/bin/rm ~/.local/share/baloo/dateLastCleaned
        /usr/bin/find ~/.config/ -maxdepth 1 -iname '*baloo*' -execdir /usr/bin/rm '{}' \;
        /usr/bin/find ~/.local/share/baloo/ -iname '*index*' -execdir /usr/bin/rm '{}' \;
        /usr/bin/date +%Y%m%d > ~/.local/share/baloo/dateLastCleaned
      fi
    else
      /usr/bin/balooctl stop
      /usr/bin/find ~/.config/ -maxdepth 1 -iname '*baloo*' -execdir /usr/bin/rm '{}' \;
      /usr/bin/find ~/.local/share/baloo/ -iname '*index*' -execdir /usr/bin/rm '{}' \;
      /usr/bin/date +%Y%m%d > ~/.local/share/baloo/dateLastCleaned
    fi
