Benchmarks "A number of search engines are available for the Gnome and KDE desktop environments, many based around the open source Lucene search engine. It would be tremendous if we could adopt one of these search engines for the Gnome platform, so we can provide the type of integrated search experience for our users that they really need, irrespective of which distort they are using. So to help in this assessment we have carried out a comparison of four different Unix based indexers [.pdf]."

so using 100% of CPU is now a feature and not mayor bug?

I don't think so.

When nothing else is competing for the CPU, why not use it all? With the appropriate nice setting, strigi will happily settle into the background and give up the CPU to interactive tasks, so no impact on interactive users (or other, higher priority, batch tasks either). Thats why OS' have schedulers...

indeed. when indexing, you want 100% cpu - anything less is just waisting cpu cycles... and of course, when indexing is done, cpu usage and mem usage should be as little as possible (and afaik most indexers do that right...).
