I restarted 11.4 and had a flurry of sustained hard drive activity
and I took a look at what was running in top. I was quite surprised
when I found:

4955 david 39 19 319m 18m 10m R 47 0.5 0:11.26 tracker-extract
4666 david 20 0 192m 19m 5788 S 38 0.5 0:19.49 tracker-store
4550 david 39 19 279m 22m 6604 S 8 0.6 0:06.54 tracker-miner-f

.....

So what is this thing? Is it worth keeping? Should I just nuke it?
What is the collective wisdom on whether it works or is it just
another waste of cpu cycles and index db space?

I don't have tracker & co. on my virgin 11.4 install and it is not
installed by *default*, so it must have been something that *you* deemed
necessary and desirable when you choose what you wanted included in your
installation :^).

Do you not keep indexes of anything, anywhere? How do you find something
that is seldom used and doesn't have a "perfectly logical location"?

It is in the GNOME pattern at least. Also pulled by some GNOME software if you
are using KDE.
