tracker-store and tracker-miner terrorizing CPU

Post by excessive » 2018/05/22 10:42:04

On our Centos7 (GNOME) workstations we have the processes tracker-store and tracker-miner messing with the CPU load. I found a way to to change some settings of it via the tracker-preferences package, but I'm looking for more radical solution of turning that off completely, ideally during kickstart install of the machines. What would be the best way to achieve that?

Try uninstalling the tracker package? For kickstart, you can specify -tracker to exclude the package. Hopefully uninstalling the package won't try to uninstall tons of other dependant packages as well, I haven't checked.

For the sake of the test I did yum remove tracker. This is what is gone.

Removing:
tracker x86_64 1.10.5-4.el7 @anaconda 5.6 M
Removing for dependencies:
evince-nautilus x86_64 3.22.1-5.el7 @anaconda 19 k
gnome-boxes x86_64 3.22.4-4.el7 @anaconda 5.0 M

You mention 'radical' - In my weekly backup scripts is this line which pretty much kills it for me

Code: Select all

rm /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.freedesktop.Tracker1.*
If an update replaces the files, they're gone again the following week.

Alright.

Removing the tracker package isn't proper solution because it removes way too many important dependancies.
