Re: [opensuse] searching the journal is incredibly slow?

I have a journal with about 1million lines in it - going through it page
by page is fine, but trying to skip a few hundred thousand lines or
search for e.g. /^Mar/ takes ages. Is this normal?

Try filefrag on the files at /var/log/journal/*/*, they are extremely
fragmented (5k fragments for a 100MB file!?). This is a known problem with
journald and there was some post on this list a while ago that indicated that
it won't be fixed soon, if at all.
