Re: Beagle and its startup


ok so i know that about the gaim backend, thanks for that info :)
Unfortunatly i didn't find any info how to check if a file is indexed by beagle. is there a way apart of using the normal search?

Additionally i think i have the same problem as described in I told beagle to index my /mp3s. There are about 20.000 Files in this directory but beagle. I ran beagle a few times every time from the beginnig to test if it's indexing more files if i start it over and over again. i think, but can't prove that beagle get's more and more files.

Is this a known behavior or is a directory of > 20.000 files simply too much?

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 ...

Yeah, this is a performance bottleneck in the Gaim backend.  It was one
of the first ones written, and so isn't written particularly well.  The
right thing to do with it would be to use an indexable generator, and
mark the actual log files as indexed so they're not recrawled.  Not a
ton of work, it just needs to be done.

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?

Correct.  It will index as hard as it can and really slow down your
machine.  But it's the fastest way to get everything indexed.
