EXAMPLE

       [General]

       Verbosity=0

       InitialSleep=50

Sections

   General
       This section may contain general settings for trackerd.

       Verbosity=VALUE
              Specifies  how  verbose trackerd should be logging. VALUE can be
              one of 0 through 3.

              0      Show no but  error  and  critical  output,  this  is  the
                     default behavior.

              1      Show minimal output, i.e. not just errors.

              2      Show verbose output.

              3      Show  debugging output, enable this only if you know what
                     you are doing.

       LowMemoryMode=BOOLEAN
              Enables low memory mode. Tracker may be slightly  less  fast  at
              indexing/search but also needs less system memory.

       InitialSleep=VALUE
              Sets  the  initial  sleep time for trackerd. This is a number of
              seconds that trackerd wait before indexing.

   Watches
       WatchDirectoryRoots=DIRECTORY[;MORE;DIRECTORIES]
              Sets the directories trackerd should watch and  index.  Defaults
              to the users home directory.

       NoWatchDirectory=DIRECTORY[;MORE;DIRECTORIES]
              Sets  directories  trackerd  should  ignore,  i.e.  not index or
              watch.

       CrawlDirectory=DIRECTORY[;MORE;DIRECTORIES]
              Sets directories trackerd should index once but  not  watch  for
              changes.

       EnableWatching=BOOLEAN
              Enables or disables watching of directories, i.e. re-index files
              when they change.

   Indexing
       This section may contain indexing related options.

       Throttle=VALUE
              Sets the throttling value for the  Indexer.  VALUE  can  be  any
              number  from  0  to  20  whereas higher values decrease indexing
              speed.

       EnableIndexing=BOOLEAN
              Enable or disable the indexer.

       EnableFileContentIndexing=BOOLEAN
              Enable or disable indexing of files text contents.

       EnableThumbnails=BOOLEAN
              Enable or disable the generation of thumbnails.

       NoIndexFileTypes=FILEGLOB[;MORE;FILEGLOBS...]
              List of partial file patterns  (glob)  separated  by  semicolons
              that  specify  files  not  to  index.  Only basic metadata (i.e.
              information retrieved by stat(2)) is indexed.

       MinWordLength=VALUE
              Sets the minimum word length to index. Words  having  less  then
              VALUE characters will not be indexed.

       MaxWordLength=VALUE
              Sets  the  maximum  word length to index. Words having more then
              VALUE characters will not be indexed.

       Language=LANGCODE
              Sets the language specific stemmer and  stopword  list  to  use.
              Valid values are:

       OptimizationSweepCount=VALUE
              Specifies the no of entities to index before determining whether
              to perform index optimization. Default to 10000.

       MaxBucketCount=VALUE
              Sets  the  maximum  bucket  count  for  the indexer. Defaults to
              524288.

       Divisions=VALUE
              Sets no. of divisions of the index file. Default to 4.

       BucketRatio=VALUE

              Defaults to 1.

       Padding=VALUE
              Alters how much padding is used to  prevent  index  relocations.
