About 1.1GiB, ~5% of the available system memory. Very reasonable.

No, not as of the report. I did shortly after - it was that, or it killed me by
swapping anything useful to disk.

Yes. I think balooctl it was waiting for baloo_file_extractor to provide some
information, but the extractor never would. I think it was busy extracting. I
don't have a way to ctrl-c file extractor, but I think when I send the
equivalent signal it shuts down just fine. ("End Process" in system monitor.)

Searching is still lightning fast. It seems it was designed very well in that
I was definitely overburdening it. I feel it really should have known better
than to try to index a tremendous plain-text file, though. It is enthusiastic,
it bit off significantly more than it could chew. The actual search index for
the forum the database dump was from takes over a week to rebuild on the
server, I imagine the more generalised search tool would be absolutely doomed
in that endeavour. That, and a week of solid uptime is quite rare for me.

Would Dolphin's ctrl-f suffice? It's up to 1158 folders and 115308 files.
Somewhat amazingly, although the search results took a few minutes to populate,
Dolphin itself is still perfectly responsive and I can scroll through the files
just fine. Typing to select a file works both perfectly and instantly. Memory
use remaned unremarkably low throughout the whole process, and didn't really
change when I exited Dolphin.

All 374579 files have now finished indexing. The current size of the index is
11.08 GiB.
