The problem is that mdextrator seems to be a cpu and memory hog :

   PID USER      PR  NI  VIRT  RES  SHR S %CPU %MEM   TIME COMMAND

Is this normal, should I wait longer for mdextractor to finish its work ?

The first time you run mdextractor it needs to create its database; this means that it must extract the contents of all the indexable directories (default your home directory and the GNUstep Applications, Headers and Docomentation directories). This can take some time... When the database is created, all the successive work of keeping it updated is not cpu intensive.

Well I thought about that and let it run. I don't have that much data :

  PID USER      PR  NI  VIRT  RES  SHR S %CPU %MEM   TIME COMMAND
30304 philou    25   0  172m  22m 7928 R 93.8  1.5 622:48 mdextractor


And on a close enough topic : will MDFinder.app replace GWorkspace actual search tool ?

Perhaps, in the future; for the moment it is a new thing that, besides a good name for all the stuff and some icons, needs to be used and tested by the GWorkspace users.
