How to kill them - all trackers?

How to kill them - all trackers soft:

1775 ? Ssl 2:35 /usr/libexec/tracker-store
1843 tty2 DNl+ 16:29 /usr/libexec/tracker-miner-fs
1848 tty2 SNl+ 8:03 /usr/libexec/tracker-extract
1870 tty2 SNl+ 0:00 /usr/libexec/tracker-miner-user-guides
1880 tty2 SNl+ 0:00 /usr/libexec/tracker-miner-apps

They all are taking all memory with big size - about 70-80 %!

How to stop them in boot regime, not only to kill as processes through their PIDs?

Re: How to kill them - all trackers?

Why don't you try disabling all the tracker services using systemctl?
Code:
/usr/lib/systemd/user/tracker-extract.service
/usr/lib/systemd/user/tracker-miner-apps.service
/usr/lib/systemd/user/tracker-miner-fs.service
/usr/lib/systemd/user/tracker-miner-rss.service
/usr/lib/systemd/user/tracker-miner-user-guides.service
/usr/lib/systemd/user/tracker-store.service
/usr/lib/systemd/user/tracker-writeback.service
Or do a more thorough job of it with,
Code:
sudo dnf remove tracker

Re: How to kill them - all trackers?

102 packages seems a bit too much. I would opt to disable the tracker services in this case.

Re: How to kill them - all trackers?

Hi,

After a fresh install of Fedora25 I also tried to disable the tracking stuff, so far this is what I've done:

1) Check the tracker and data status
Code:
tracker daemon
tracker status

2) Disable trackers:
Code:
cp /etc/xdg/autostart/tracker* ~/.config/autostart/
sed -i 's/X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled=true/X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled=false/' ~/.config/autostart/tracker*
After the next reboot deamons will run but the indexing will be off


3) Reboot

4) Delete the old datas tracked:
Code:
tracker reset -r

5) If you want to check if datas are still collected:
Code:
mv ~/.local/share/tracker/data ~/.local/share/tracker/data_old 
mv ~/.cache/tracker ~/.cache/tracker_old
then compare the old and the new directory after few reboots.

6) Check the status again:
Code:
tracker daemon
tracker status

This is the CLI method and I am not sure if I am completely right about it.
There is also the GUI method too called tracker-preferences (dnf install tracker-preferences).

Hope it helps

There is also the GUI method too called tracker-preferences (dnf install tracker-preferences).

Hope it helps :-)
