Which version of Tracker are you using? There was a bug fixed in this
area recently.

Sorry: tracker-0.8.16-1.fc14.x86_64

Is that normal?


At 11:30 I was fed up and decided to stop it from indexing $HOME and
start index where I am working on my tracker extractor plugin (where I
have example files I want tracked).

I can understand it might take some time, considering I have many
folders and many subfolders, way too many git repositories and old
projects, but still ... (only 72 git repos)

It takes approximately 2 seconds for tracker to place a monitor on a
directory and do what needs to be done within, I thought it could be

That's not normal either.

Attached, a snip of my tracker-fs log file

Is this a first time index? It looks like it.

I would find it strange that it's a first time. I didn't wiped the
database for some time ...

This morning, when miner-fs indexed my now limited directory, it took 13
minutes: Finished mining in seconds:831.450245, total directories:229,
total files:3150

Now, I terminated the miners and started them again, and I have:
Finished mining in seconds:783.100584, total directories:229, total

Each time, to mine the applications, it takes 4 minutes: Finished mining
in seconds:255.939843, total directories:5, total files:352

It is quite possible that my database is corrupted and so tracker thinks
it has to reindex everything.
I just wiped my databased and started indexing from zero, hopefully,
that'll help.

At the moment, there is a huge difference between 0.8 and 0.9 and
depending on what technologies you use (without considering your
hardware or content being indexed). For example:

  DBus > 1.3.0?
  SQLite > 3.6?
  libunistring/libicu/glib unicode support?
  D-Bus/direct access use?
  New signaling work (in master this week)

Tracker 0.8 (stable branch)
