    Phoronix: KDE Frameworks 5.60 Bringing More Baloo Optimizations

    Making KDE's Baloo file indexing/searching framework really efficient appears to be a never-ending task. Baloo is already much less bloated recently than it's been hungry for resources in the past and with KDE Frameworks 5.60 will be slightly more fit...

    and all i still want from Baloo is real time indexing with Dolphin, Windows is just better in this regard.

        Baloo is still the thorn in my side since I switched to KDE.
        It would use huge amounts of memory and cpu for hours if you have many small files on the file system.
        Hope these optimizations helps with that ...

          Afaik KDE and Qt are using KIO which I heard is pretty slow and buggy by design, so apparently this could be one of Baloo's bottlenecks.

            Speed and responsiveness is lacking. This is especially true relative to the third party file indexer "Everything"

              Wrong. Baloo uses direct file system accesses.

                Why does anyone even want a file indexer?
                i usually disable them as soon as i spot them and they are one of the reasons i prefer xfce (but looking more into budgie lately)

                  A few milliseconds to find 100 files out of 4000 files is slow? My dear ...

                    To quickly find files by name or content.
                    I usually keep content indexing disabled because it ls too slow. But searching by name is very useful, for example to find some old PDF which you don't really remember where it is. Especially useful with corporate Dropbox with shitton of documents.
