Description Peter Dewitt 2009-06-12 23:10:42 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 4.2.4)
Compiler:          gcc-4.3.2 
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Gentoo Packages

When logging in a notification pops up explaining that Nepomuk is suspended to preserve resources. This happens every time, my machine is a quad core Phemon with 4GB of ram so this message makes appears to be wrong. If I disable the indexer then enable again it works fine, however since an update from KDE 4.2.3 to 4.2.4 I now get the message "Could not get owner ... nepomuk.services.nepomukstrigiservice: no such name" when trying to enable Strigi.

I think this has been fixed already. Does it still happen with KDE 4.4 beta1?

It does on my laptop. Not every time. Powerdevil says that the power adapter is connected but i still get a warning that file indexing is suspended.

It starts indexing again as soon as i pull out my power cord and reattach it again.

Same problem for me on my desktop computer (Opensuse, KDE 4.4.1)
Comment 5 Anthony 2010-08-10 18:30:36 UTC
I am experiencing the same problem.  Running openSUSE 11.3 on a Thinkpad X40.  It has 1GB of memory and a 1.2Ghz Pentium M processor.  Not a powerhouse but everything else runs really well.  I enable indexing from the System Tray, it goes along and indexes for a minute or two and then suspends the indexing.  I can see the virtuoso-t process running at 100% while this is happening.  This is even when it is plugged in and the power settings are set to "performance".

What additional information can I provide that would be useful?

Confirmed for me on KDE 4.5.4 on a Core i5 with 4GB of RAM. At startup my virtuoso-t process takes 100% CPU for quite a while and it is that I think that makes strigi suspend itself. What fixed it for me was to give nepomuk a shedload more RAM - it was set to 50MB - increasing it to 400MB finally sorted this for me, but 400MB for a metadata database is seriously overkill. It seems like some kind of performance problem.

I haven't seen this before, on earlier versions, but after upgrading to KDE-4.7.0 on Gentoo I started getting exactly the same "Indexing suspeded to preserve resources" notification popups on login. And this happens on a desktop machine...

No event notifications when Resuming/Suspending indexing of resources

Indexing is a background process that the user shouldn't be aware about.
We should just work, and not annoy the user about stuff like this.

Added a config option in nepomukstrigirc just in case anyone wants it.
Add ShowSuspendResumeEvents = true in [General]
