doodled - a daemon to keep your doodle database up-to-date




doodled monitors your filesystem for changes and updates the doodle database to keep it
always up-to-date with the latest data. doodled is experimental at this point. It uses
libfam and is thus limited to monitoring less than 1024 directories for changes.


-d FILENAME, --database=FILENAME
use FILENAME for the location of the database (use when building or searching).
This option is particularly useful when doodle is used to search different types of
files (or is operated with different extractor options). Using this option doodle
can be used to build specialized indices (i.e. one per file system), which can in
turn improve search performance. When searching, you can pass a colon-separated
list of database file names, in that case all databases are searched. Note that
the disk-space consumption of a single database is typically slightly smaller than
if the database is split into multiple files. Nevertheless, the space-savings are
likely to be small (a few percent). You can also use the environment variable
DOODLE_PATH to set the list of database files to search. The option overrides the
environment variable if both are used. If the option is not given and DOODLE_PATH
is not set, "/var/lib/doodle" is used.

-D, --debug
do not detach from the terminal (do not daemonize). Also will print log messages
to stderr if no logfile is specified.

-f, --filenames
include filenames (full path) in the set of keywords

-h, --help
print help page

specify which libextractor plugins to use (for building the index with -b or for
printing information about files with -e)

log messages to the given logfile.

-m LIMIT, --memory=LIMIT
use at most LIMIT MB of memory for the nodes of the suffix-tree (after that,
serialize to disk). Note that a smaller value will reduce memory consumption but
increase the size of the temporary file (and slow down indexing). The default is 8

-n, --nodefault
do not load the default set of plugins (only load plugins specified with -l)

-P PATH, --prunepaths=PATH
Directories to not put in the database, which would otherwise be. The environment
variable PRUNEPATHS also sets this value. Default is "/tmp /usr/tmp /var/tmp /dev
/proc /sys". This option can also be used when searching, in which case search
results in the specified directories will be ignored.

-v, --version
print the version number

-V, --verbose
be verbose


Colon-separated list of databases to search. Note that when building the database
this path must either only contain one filename or the option -b must be used to
specify the database file. Default is "/var/lib/doodle".

Space-separated list of paths to exclude. Can be overridden with the -P option.


Doodle depends on GNU libextractor. You can download libextractor from
