Description Erik 2024-05-02 15:10:16 UTC
After recently upgrading to fedora 40, I noticed high CPU temperatures. After checking system monitor, it turned out that the process "tracker-miner-fs-3" was using a lot of CPU resources and not stopping. 
I made a post on the fedora forums as well: https://discussion.fedoraproject.org/t/tracker-miner-service-causing-high-cpu-usage/115906

Reproducible: Didn't try

Actual Results:  
Constant high CPU usage

Expected Results:  
Maybe short CPU spikes; Normal CPU Temperatures and CPU usage by the tracker-miner-fs-3 process

I "fixed" this by restarting the service with the command "systemctl --user restart tracker-miner-fs-3.service". The process started up again and did not constantly use a lot of CPU.
Here is an excerpt from the service logs using "systemctl --user status tracker-miner-fs-3.service", this occurred multiple times:

This component is maintained by the GNOME project. Issues with it should be reported directly to GNOME at https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/.

This issue should only be kept open if it:

1. Relates to Fedora packaging or integration with other Fedora components
2. Is required for Fedora release processes, such as blocker bugs and freeze exceptions

If this issue isn't needed for either of these two reasons, please:

 * create an issue with GNOME
 * add a link to the GNOME issue here
 * close this issue as CLOSED/UPSTREAM

Thank you!
