max inotify user watches in the kernel should be increased
Status in “beagle” package in Ubuntu:
Status in “procps” package in Ubuntu:
Binary package hint: beagle
As described by Joe Shaw in
http://thomas.apestaart.org/log/?p=482#comment-2699 beagle will fall-
back to continously indexing a user's files, if it fails to inotfy
watch all directories for changes. The described solution is
increasing /proc/sys/fs/inotify/max_user_watches to some higher value.
Increasing this number should not have any adverse effects, unless the
watches are actually used.
On my system I increased the number to 32768, as i have almost that many sub-directories in my homedir:
find . -type d | wc -l
I increased the value by adding "fs.inotify.max_user_watches = 32768"
to /etc/sysctl.conf, not sure if it can be done in some way only if
beagle has been installed?
