I'm using 8tb RAID storage (XFS filesystem) filled witch lots of files. By default Suse had installed tracker for file indexing/searching but:
- It's constantly reading HDDs (like for half a year now and it always takes ~90% I/O) and making the OS sluggish.
- It simply doesn't work - it found 96 videos when I have a few thousand and 80k pictures when I have few single directories with > 500k in each + many smaller ones. When I'm looking at its statistics I feel as if it scanned just few gb.
Is there any better alternative? I'm mostly concerned with command-line search as many of these directories can't be even displayed properly by KDE (KDE apps throw file protocol error after opening >500k directories)
