beagle consumes cpu


Hi i have installed suse 10.1 and i have noticed i new programme is running named beagle
Using top command i have notice that the thread beagled-helper consumes about 80% of my cpu.
Do u have similar problems? Does beagle consumes so much cpu power?

It's a desktop search utility tool for Suse.. I'd say kill it if you don't need or use it. A continuous search tool to me would seem silly, since search is a resource hog within itself.

It does consume a lot of CPU at times but it doesn't run with a high priority and doesn't do that a lot by default.
To get rid of it uninstalling beagle and beagled should do it.

You can run "beagle-shutdown" to stop the daemon. The first time it runs it will be indexing a lot of files. After that, it will use a kernel feature (inotify) so it only needs to track new files.

beagled

Just a quick note.

Programs were taking too long to load. Terminal alone would take up to 30 seconds. I ran top and sure enough there was beagled and beagled-helper. I ran beagle-shutdown and performance improved significantly.
