tracker-extract process with 100% cpu usage

Post by mahmood » 2018/10/24 15:53:53

I see a 100% cpu utilized process from a user with the name "tracker-extract". At first, I thought it might be crypto mining hijack. However, the cmdline and cwd look like a system process

Code: Select all

  PID USER      PR  NI    VIRT    RES    SHR S  %CPU %MEM     TIME+ COMMAND
19015 jafaria+  39  19  730052  13760   8056 R  99.3  0.0   4:59.46 tracker-extract

[root@rocks7 

tmp]# cd /proc/19015
[root@rocks7 19015]# cat cmdline
/usr/libexec/tracker-extract[root@rocks7 19015]# ls cwd/
Any thought?

Most probably it's the gnome's indexing stuff . Are you using the GUI ?
In my case I have it too:
snikolov 3807 0.0 0.0 974284 18084 ? SNl окт21 0:05 /usr/libexec/tracker-extract
snikolov 5365 0.0 0.0 898500 15964 ? SNl окт21 0:03 /usr/libexec/tracker-extract
Try to restart it with:

Code: Select all

tracker-daemon -k all && tracker-deamon -s

Yes. Multiple users connect via the gnome desktop.
Is this ok?

Code: Select all

[root@rocks7 tmp]# /usr/libexec/tracker-extract -k all && tracker-deamon -s

(tracker-extract:10343): GLib-GIO-CRITICAL **: g_bus_get_sync: assertion 'error == NULL || *error == NULL' failed

(tracker-extract:10343): Tracker-CRITICAL **: Could not start decorator: Unknown option -k

[root@rocks7 tmp]#

It seems it didn't stop at all.
Most probably it will be safe to kill it.

No idea?
Sometimes, even when I kill it, I see that again with another PID.
