      tracker-miner-fs: Always delete graph nie:InformationElement on create/update · 96143ae5
      Carlos Garnacho authored
      There are some situations where the file monitors cannot distinguish between
      a file being created where none existed before, or a file newly created
      replacing a previously existing file.
      Treat all create/update events the same WRT trimming the previously
      existing nie:InformationElements, in order to ensure these updates that
      pass as creates also result in the file being reindexed by the
      metadata extractor. This only applies to files that would have metadata
      While at it, simplify the SPARQL and move the code so that it is not
      scattered across the function.

      tracker-extract: Check field type on IPTC data embedded in TIFFs · 73637bb3
      Carlos Garnacho authored
      The field containing IPTC metadata can come either as TIFF_LONG (32-bit
      ints, endianness dependent), or TIFF_UNDEFINED (a byte string). We currently
      handle everything as TIFF_LONG, which may cause memory corruptions if we
      deal with a file where we must perform endianness swapping and receive
      non-long-aligned data.
      Ensure to handle only these 2 types as it is defined for the TIFFTAG_RICHTIFFIPTC
      tag, and only perform byte swapping for non-byte data (i.e. TIFF_LONG).
      This is more in line with what other (e.g. ImageMagick) do when dealing with
      byte-swapping and IPTC data.

      tracker: Handle stale reports for disappeared files in "tracker3 status" · 878e7eeb
      Carlos Garnacho authored
      As every race condition is possible in filesystems, it is possible that a
      file disappears under tracker-extract-3 feet after existence checks, but
      before the extractor module opens the file for metadata extraction.
      In that case we could generate error reports for files that do no longer
      exist, and whose report won't be automatically deleted ever again.
      Ensure to trim these stale files during "tracker3 status" output
      generation, so there's something able to remove these from the filesystem
      and they don't confuse users into thinking these are legit errors.

      libtracker-miner: Handle FAN_DELETE[_SELF] being emitted separately on dirs · 2d230e6f
      Carlos Garnacho authored
      If there is a monitor on a dir and its parent, fanotify used to be able to
      coalesce the event so FAN_DELETE and FAN_DELETE_SELF would be both set on
      an uniquely sent event.
      This seems no longer the case on more recent linux versions, where these
      generate 2 separate events, first FAN_DELETE_SELF for the folder being
      deleted, and then FAN_DELETE from the parent dir to notify of the parent
      folder structure change. This double DELETE event emission is inconsistent
      with TrackerMonitor behavior and causes test failures.
      Handle these 2 events, by caching both and being able to merge them, but
      flushing on the one that is expected last. Fixes tracker-file-notifier-test
      on recent linux versions (locally, 5.17.0).

      tracker-extract: ignore subtrack titles for videos · 47b13910
      Ignacy Kuchciński authored and Carlos Garnacho's avatar Carlos Garnacho committed
      Currently, the resulting nie:title includes titles from the individual
      tracks due to both gstreamer not differentiating between
      global/container tags and track tags until introducing
      gst_discoverer_container_info_get_tags() as new API and tracker-extract
      gstreamer backend looping through available tracks and collecting all
      tags it could find.
      As a result, in cases where there is no title tag in the container, but
      there are some title tags in subtitle or audio tracks, they are included
      in the nie:title and prevent the file name based fallback title in grilo
      and cause the video to show up with nonsense titles in totem.
      To fix this, replace gst_discoverer_info_get_tags() with the new API,
      and ignore title tags from subtracks if the file is a video.
      Fixes #202

      libtracker-miners-common: Use better stable filesystem identifiers · f0ab9c97
      Carlos Garnacho authored
      Our new stable identifiers come in the `urn:fileid:$FS_ID:$INODE/$SUFFIX`
      format, where $FS_ID is a stable identifier for the filesystem. We
      currently use G_FILE_ATTRIBUTE_ID_FILESYSTEM for that, but that may differ
      in some circumstances, e.g. removable mounts inserted in different order.
      Try harder at obtaining a stable identifier for the filesystem, that will
      not change on these runtime conditions. We prefer identifiers in this
      - If the mount entry node is an actual partition (e.g. /dev/sda3), look
        up the filesystem UUID with blkid
      - If the mount entry points to a non-physical partition (e.g.
        /dev/mapper/luks-$UUID, or $HOST:$FOLDER with NFS), the mount entry
        device name is used.
      - If none of these are found (e.g. tmpfs), we still resort to
      These identifiers are cached for all available mount entries in mtab
      for fast lookups, and are updated on mount entry changes.

      Now that crawling is throttled by the amount of items left to process

      libtracker-miner: Add control for the "high water" hint in TrackerMinerFS · cf43cf9c
      Carlos Garnacho authored
      If there are too many files already queued (worth 2 batches), set the hint
      on. This greatly reduces the peak memory used by tracker-miner-fs-3, esp. on

      libtracker-miner: Notify created/updated files soon · 98e5e022
      Carlos Garnacho authored
      Let the files found during crawling (either created or updated, and
      we already know that by merging the information with database queries)
      be notified before waiting for the whole index root to be finished.
      This allows early handling from the TrackerMinerFS side, and some way
      to let it control the "high water" hint if there are too many files
      being queued. Otherwise all files found are added at once, and the
      "high water" hint becomes moot.

      libtracker-miner: Avoid stopping during flush if possible · a15b62dc
      Carlos Garnacho authored
      Due to the way we asked the store to create the file content URNs
      for us, we fairly often had to stop all the machinery while there was
      a SPARQL batch being inserted, since we need information on files
      that are in the batch being executed before proceeding with files
      being processed now (e.g. a nfo:belongsToContainer relation).
      Since the file content URNs are stable and quick to fetch from GIO,
      we no longer need to wait for anything here. File processing is
      able to continue now despite these "dependency" files being in a
      batch that is being inserted.
      Still, avoid to have more than one batch in flight, if the SPARQL
      buffer gets full again before the prior batch finished insertion,
      processing will stop until that happens. This still favors memory
      usage over parallellization, if batches are built up quicker than
      they are inserted in the database, there will always be worth 2 of
      them in flight.

      libtracker-miner: Remove unused task pool in TrackerMinerFs · 96042233
      Carlos Garnacho authored
      Since the file information extraction in tracker-miner-fs was streamlined
      so the GFileInfo would be obtained from the TrackerFileNotifier and pushed
      to the upper layers, file extraction became no longer asynchronous and this
      task pool became unused (besides, it had a limit of 1 for a long time).
      So we were left with the code that did the task pool maintenance, but no
      elements were ever added to it. It looks like this code can be simply
      peeled off.

      libtracker-miner: Add Fanotify TrackerMonitor implementation · 661f2bcd
      Carlos Garnacho authored
      Since recent kernel versions, the fanotify file change notification
      API is finally available without CAP_SYS_ADMIN. Add a TrackerMonitor
      implementation that uses this new API.
      This object is also used in favor of the GFileMonitor-based
      implementation wherever possible, since it performs infinitely better
      than inotify with the presence of many file monitors. Since there is
      only one file descriptor (and one GSource) as opposed to one per
      monitored directory, this results in faster behavior of tracker-miner-fs
      overall (first time index, second time startups, and tracking of changed
      files) and reduced memory overhead.

      This helper function works on top of G_FILE_ATTRIBUTE_ID_FILE which

      - It is unique system-wide.
      - It is persistent as long as there are no file content changes
        (e.g. persists on attribute updates).
      - It is persistent across file moves/renames too.
      And extends the benefits a bit:
      - It is persistent across reindexes.
      - It is a stat() away, no need to insert a blank node and query for its

      stable URNs for file content. Optionally, a suffix can be added,
