Re: Beagle and its startup

Hi there again :)

thanks for pointing me to that bugreport.
After really restarting beagle with exercise_the_dog beagle did a really fast job and indexed all open things. problem is now that some of my files can't be found via the query. is there a possibilty to work around the automatic index and index a path manually, so that this path comes to my normal index? i know this isn't really a solution, but it would help as long as this bug (?) exists.

for example: i have my mp3s in /mp3s
there are some directorys in it with name "herbert ... "

a "beagle-query herbert" only lists some documents, but doesnt tell about the folders. /mp3s is configurated to be indexed.

i think i did all right, but don't know for sure ;)

When i look at the status i get a count of 422. when i stopped beagle by
hand shortly before i logged out, it was at ~ 10000.
Doesn't this always take a long time from start to the point till which
beagle will index new stuff?
Scanning directories is more or less fast especially if you everything
unchanged since lasttime beagle ran. But, you are right. Beagle will
have to traverse the directory tree to reach a new directory or file
at which point it will find new stuff. A better behaviour would be to
somehow start at new directories.

Hmm i think "fast" has to bee seen relativly in this circumstance. Beagle for me starts always with checking my gaim logs. and noW after running for more than a hour, it's still checking gaim logs. ok gaim has a total of 37 mb of logs in 5086 files, but i don't know if you see this as fast ... Btw i'm running beagle with export BEAGLE_EXERCISE_THE_DOG=1, so it shouldn't take care of the load of my pc, right? and maybe you can tell me if there is something wrong, or if it's ok that way.
anyway this shouldn't be a complain :)

Or will changes on files be more important and because of inotify appear
directly in beagle although, it has to look through it's index to see if
something has changed while being "offline".
Changes to files when beagle is running will be picked up instantly.
Only indexing files modified when beagle was offline is delayed.
