Prioritize Baloo File Indexing Process

Baloo_file_extractor is busy indexing files at 5% cpu usage. Because of poor thermal design pc fans are going up and down all the time. Is there a way to get through this process quicker? I would rather have it done fast than being gentle.

man nice

Alternatively, you can use ksysguard or any other process monitor — such as htop — to send a signal to the process. A lower nice value means that the process will be allotted more CPU time.

However, I do not believe it would be possible to actually set the priority anywhere. As far as I can tell, it’s hard-coded.

Yes, it seems to be throttled regardless the process priority settings
