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?

This is a known issue for which there is no optimum solution other than placing the journal in an SSD drive.

The time it takes to search in the journal depends on the fragmentation
of the files, the filesystem..etc.. it is even suspected there is a kernel bug that contributes to this, but such bug so far has not been isolated. (afaik greg KH tried with no luck)
