I've understood that tracker-store is a part of Gnome and that it has something to do with indexing a lot of stuff. Many people have complained about it and I have found lots of instructions for how to disable it. Like these:
But one question I have not found an answer to yet is if it eventually will go down to reasonable levels. It seems reasonable that it has to do a lot of work on a newly installed system.
So do I have to disable it to stop it from stealing cpu, or will it eventually stop on its own? So far it has been running for two days.
Another question is if there is a way to see how far it has come in its indexing progress.
I think (but I'm not sure) I found a command to see the progress, but that did certainly not make me happy. The command is
tracker status and it shows this after two days:
$ sudo tracker status Currently indexed: 0 files, 0 folders Remaining space on database partition: 43.2 GB (88.16%) All data miners are idle, indexing complete
