trackerd - indexer daemon for tracker search tool
Trackerd provides both a powerful indexer and an extensible metadata
database. It indexes files including the text contents and any
available metadata to provide fast search services.
By default, trackerd will index all files in a user’s home directory
(with the exception of hidden files). This can be overridden by
specifying one or more directories to be indexed instead in the
configuration file ($HOME/.config/tracker/tracker.cfg) and/or by using
the --include-dir option to specify other directories to be indexed.
A brief help message including some examples.

Specifies a directory to be included for indexing. All non-
hidden subdirectories of the specified directory will also be
indexed. If this param is set then the user’s home directory is

directory with this option).

lower values increasing indexing speed.
Minimise memory usage. Note that this may slow down indexing.
Set the initial sleep time in seconds. This is the time trackerd
waits at startup before indexing.

This forces trackerd to re-index all watched files and
directories. Since every watched directory and any previously
indexed file has to be read and processed again, this may
degrade the whole system performance, see also --throttle.
Makes any errors fatal, i.e. forces abortion of trackerd. This
switch is only useful for debugging.
