       tracker-control - Manage Tracker processes and data

       tracker-control [OPTION...]

       tracker-control manages and checks status of all Tracker processes and data.

       Controls Tracker both at process level, and at entity level (store, miners).

       To  start  or stop miners, you can use --start.	The store is started automatically by the
       D-Bus calls from the miners.

       It also allows checking the status of the Tracker store and all data miners.  For tracker-
       store , the status is always Idle unless it is restoring a backup and/or replaying a jour-
       nal (regardless of load from applications or miners). For a list of common  statuses,  see

       The  miners  can be paused or resumed using this command and you can also list miners run-
       ning and available.

       -?, --help
	      Show summary of options by group.

       -?, --help-all
	      Show all groups and options.

       -V, --version
	      Returns the version of this program.

       -p, --list-processes
	      This lists all Tracker processes in the system.

       -k, --kill=[all|store|miners]
	      This uses SIGKILL to stop all Tracker processes found matching the parameter, if no
	      extra  parameter is passed, all will be assumed. This is not advised unless you are
	      having problems stopping Tracker in the first place. This GUARANTEES death.

       -t, --terminate=[all|store|miners]
	      This uses SIGTERM to stop all Tracker processes found matching the parameter, if no
	      extra  parameter	is  passed,  all will be assumed. This is recommended over --kill
	      because it gives the processes time to shutdown cleanly.

       -r, --hard-reset
	      This kills all processes in the same way that --kill does but it also  removes  all
	      databases. Restarting tracker-store re-creates the databases.

       -e, --soft-reset
	      A  soft reset works exactly the same way that --hard-reset does, with the exception
	      that the backup and journal are not removed.  These are restored when tracker-store
	      is restarted.

       -c, --remove-config
	      This  removes all config files in $HOME/.config/tracker. All files listed are files
	      which were found and successfully removed.  Restarting the respective processes re-
	      creates the default configuration files.

	      This displays the log verbosity for ALL components using GSettings for this config-
	      uration. For possible values, see --set-log-verbosity.

	      This sets the log verbosity for ALL components using GSettings using this  configu-
	      ration option ('verbosity').

       -s, --start
	      Starts  all  miners.  This indirectly starts tracker-store too because it is needed
	      for miners to operate properly.

       -b, --backup=FILE
	      Begins backing up the Tracker databases to the FILE given.

       -o, --restore=FILE
	      Begins restoring a previous backup (see --backup ) to the  Tracker  databases.  The
	      FILE points to the location of the backup.

       -S, --status
	      Show the current status of all Tracker entities (store and all available miners).

       -F, --follow
	      Follow  status  changes  as they happen. This requires Ctrl+C to stop and return to
	      the command line. Each new status is put on a new line.

       -C, --list-common-statuses
	      This will list statuses most commonly produced by miners and the store. These  sta-
	      tuses  are  not  translated  when  sent over D-Bus and should be translated by each
	      application. These are not considered static and	are  subject  to  change  at  any

	      Additionally,  these  statuses  are  not	the  only ones which may be reported by a
	      miner. There may be other states pertaining to the specific roles of the	miner  in

       -m, --reindex-mime-type=MIME
	      Re-index	files  which  match  the  MIME	type  supplied. This is usually used when
	      installing new extractors which support MIME  types  previously  unsupported.  This
	      forces  Tracker  to re-index those files. You can use --reindex-mime-type more than
	      once per MIME type.

       -f, --index-file=FILE
	      (Re)index a file matching the FILE type supplied.

       -l, --list-miners-running
	      This will list all miners which have responded to a D-Bus call.	Sometimes  it  is
	      helpfult to use this command with --list-miners-available.

       -a, --list-miners-available
	      This  will  list all miners which are available even if they are not running at the

       -i, --pause-details
	      For listing all miners which are paused and the reasons for being paused,  you  can
	      use this. It will also display the application that requested the pause too.

	      This argument is used with --pause or --resume to say which miner you want to pause
	      or   resume.   You   can	 use   the   full   D-Bus   name,   e.g.    org.freedesk-
	      top.Tracker1.Miner.Files OR you can use the suffix, e.g.	Files

	      The  REASON  here  is useful to know WHY the miner should be paused. A miner can be
	      paused many times by multiple applications. Only when all pauses have been  resumed
	      will  it	continue.  If successful, a cookie will be given to uniquely identify the
	      request. This cookie is used to resume the pause at a later stage.

	      This works exactly the same way as --pause with the exception that  it  only  keeps
	      the  pause  active  while the calling process is alive. As soon as you press Ctrl+C
	      the pause is resumed automatically.

	      The COOKIE is given by a successful --pause command. It is a number  which  identi-
	      fies  each  pause request. When all pauses have been resumed, the miner will resume
