I just mounted some backups using fuse into my home directory, and woah was this a bad idea. Tracker, the program that makes files full-text searchable in linux, has decided to start scanning the mounted directory. I imagine that behind the scenes it’s currently having a wild time scanning files and directories because my fans are blazing any my CPUs are pegged.
There’s some documentation around about how to tell Tracker to leave a directory alone. I’m not sure which of the docs are outdated, and I suspect that we don’t want to have to tell every filesystem indexer to leave things alone. Maybe this should go in the docs?
Just thought I’d mention this since it’s a bit of a curious thing that’s happening. Only solution I’ve got is to umount the fuse as soon as possilbe.
