tracker does not adjust to performance settings

Bug #367244 reported by Wolf Rogner on 2009-04-26
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
tracker (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

In tracker-preferences one can adjust how the tracker uses system resources in the performance tab.

However, in 9.04 none of these settings show any effect. Same performance requirements whether using memory or not (memory footprint stays the same), same cpu requirements (whether doing faster or slower setting).

On my 2 processor NB it constantly takes 70% of one CPU.

For a tool that constantly reports errors due to access problems to the index database, no observable search results (it does not even find a file that sits in my user directory, let alone somewhere down the path), not capable of doing content search, this is a lot of waste of resources.

Q1: Where is the documentation as to what it is supposed to do?
Q2: How can I uninstall it without removing all the other programs?

Final note: The tooltip suggests that there is a progress in the indexing (files indexed number rising). THe statistics do the same. However, the process odt2txt is stuck with only one file (which is not too big) and there is no progress doing searches.

So to me, it hangs.
