beagled: the Beagle desktop search daemon

NAME

beagled - the Beagle desktop search daemon

SYNOPSIS

beagled [options]

DESCRIPTION

beagled, the Beagle daemon, is the heart of Beagle, a system for searching and managing your personal information space. The Beagle daemon should normally be started as part of user's desktop startup process.

Running beagled by hand is of use for those wishing to customize the Beagle daemon's execution via command-line options, developers testing Beagle, or those who use Beagle only infrequently.

OPTIONS

--foreground|--fg
If specified, execute the Beagle daemon in the foreground.
--background|--bg
If specified, execute the Beagle daemon in the background (default).
--replace
If specified, the daemon tries to shutdown and replace any other Beagle daemon already running.
--backend
Configure which backends to use.
--backend <name>
       Only start backend 'name'
--backend +<name>
       Additionally start backend 'name'       
--backend -<name>
       Disable backend 'name'  
--list-backends
Retrieve a list of all known backends. This list of backends can then be used with with the --allow/deny-backend options. Using this argument will print out the list of backends and then exit.
--add-static-backend
Add a static backend by path.
--version
Show version of daemon, Mono, and Sqlite.

ADVANCE OPTIONS

These options are mainly for debugging and fine-tuning execution and are thus not required for standard use.
--debug
Enable extensive logging suited for general debugging purposes.

--indexing-test-mode

 Run in foreground, and exit when fully indexed.
--indexing-delay
