tracker-index(1)		 User Commands		      tracker-index(1)

       tracker-index  -	 List,	pause, resume and command data miners indexing

       tracker index --reindex-mime-type <mime1> [[-m [mime2]] ...]
       tracker index --file <file1> [[file2] ...]
       tracker index --import <file1> [[file2] ...]
       tracker index --backup <file> | --restore <file>

       This command perform actions on the current index. The "index" holds  a
       snapshot	of the working tree in a database.

       The  index  command  allows  some level of control on existing data in-
       dexed, such as re-indexing content from a specific demographic  -  e.g.
       all JPEG	images,	or simply reindexing an	existing or non-existent file.

       It  may	be  a good idea	to backup your index before an upgrade in case
       there is	data loss (which should	never happen).	In  those  cases,  the
       backup command is made available	and of course the restore command will
       import an older data set	(or index) into	an empty index.

       Finally,	there is an import feature which makes testing or  applying  a
       "base" data set for use much easier.

       -m, --reindex-mime-type=<mime1> [[-m [mime2]] ...]
	      Re-index	files which match the mime type	supplied. This is usu-
	      ally used	when installing	 new  extractors  which	 support  mime
	      types  previously	 unsupported.  This forces Tracker to re-index
	      those files. You can use --reindex-mime-type more	than once  per
	      mime type.

       -f, --index=<file1> [[file2] ...]
	      (Re)index	a file matching	the file name(s) supplied.

       -b, --backup=<file>
	      Begins  backing up the Tracker databases and save	it to the file

       -o, --restore=<file>
	      Begins restoring a previous backup from the file which points to
	      the location of the backup generated by --backup.

       i, --import=<file1> [[file2] ...]
	      Allows  data to be imported into the index / database by provid-
	      ing files	with Turtle content.

	      Multiple file arguments can be provided to import	data from mul-
	      tiple files.

	      The  file	 argument can be either	a local	path or	a URI. It also
	      does not have to be an absolute path.

       tracker(1).  Turtle.
