Poor performance issue - gnome gvfsd-dav spawner

Hi, I'm actually using Manjaro GNOME on a SSD but I found the experience really poor.
Like you can see in the video, every action are so long to achieve.
I don't really know how I can solve it. Is it normal for GNOME.

PS: Here is my configuration specs
CPU: AMD Athlon X4 860K

Do you have experience with other software on this PC? Other linuxes, other environments (KDE, XFCE, ?) Are they all slow?

I mean your CPU is slow in the first place. I am wondering what you could theroretically expect from that HW.

This will provide a lot more detailed information regarding your hardware.

can you check ( see memory used )
an another TTY ( Ctrl + Alt + F3 , or Fn )


WTF is that ?
I haven't seen that before

are you using dav or mountpoint with dav or http with webdav?

Euh now I have this new thing who consume all my ram

Actually it's sucking my ressources I can't move my cursor

I believe that's the gnome search engine indexer. You probably want to disable that.

I'm using davs://

Here is the log that I've obtained when listen to music stored on my cloud

Btw, I connect my cloud using the gnome-online-account application in the gnome-settings

aurnyto+  3330  1189  0 11:48 ?        00:00:01 /usr/lib/gvfsd-dav --spawner :1.16 /org/gtk/gvfs/exec_spaw/2
aurnyto+  3615   638  4 11:51 ?        00:00:01 /usr/bin/vlc --started-from-file /run/user/1000/gvfs/dav:host=aurnytoraink.ddns.net,ssl=true,user=Aurnytoraink,prefix=%2Fremote.php%2Fwebdav/Musique/Nekfeu/Les étoiles vagabondes/10 Dans l'univers.flac

Well, I can disable it (if you can explain me how) but what will I miss ?

I don't use gnome. I am a KDE user. I know how to disable the KDE indexer, not the Gnome one.

To learn how to do something the best way to find the information is to use the forums search engine. This was the most likely candidite I found with a quick search. I suggest you avail yourself of the search engine yourself in the future.
