Note 2: btw, another solution could be to replace
beagle with something
else. Did people investigate how the other players in this field compare
to beagle? Are people opposed to beagle specifically or to the fact that
an indexer has an impact on performances?
1. I have not seen any data comparing Beagle with other search
options. Most of them are variants of Lucene.
The facts that they are variants of Lucene doesn't help compare ;-)
2. I de-install it even on my 4 GB dual-core
Athlon/Turion 64 systems.
It renders my 512 MB Athlon XP unusable.
3. If Beagle is an integral part of Gnome, perhaps the correct
approach is for someone to profile Beagle and find out where the
bottlenecks are. And if it's doing something stupid, do something
smarter. But as it stands now, I can't think of a use case that would
justify installing it given its present behavior.
It's not an integral part of GNOME since upstream doesn't come with
something like beagle/tracker/etc. by default (although the code to use
them is there). However, the upstream experience for searching is, hrm,
not really great. That's why beagle is installed by default in the first
place: because it's supposed to help polish the user experience.
(of course, it appears that it's failing there for a good bunch of
users because of impact on performances)
And yes, one useful thing to do would be to have people profile beagle
and see what's wrong.
