Insync is one of the more consuming processes

According ps is one of the most consuming process in my system, only some OS components beat it

ps  axco pid,command,time --sort=time

Nextcloud, with similar features, consume 1/10 of the processor time.
I niced insync to 19 but with few result.
This is unhealty for consume and battery.

How can I solve this problem?

Hi @Guido_Iodice,

Was Insync doing a large sync at the time the consumption was increasing?

Please also send your logs.db and out.txt files to with the link to this post.

yes, it does. Despite this, in top I see insync go up very often, unlike nextcloud which rarely goes up. This rise seems to me mitigated with nice=19, but not by much.
I’m sending the files to support.

Thank you for sending the files, @Guido_Iodice. I was able to receive them and have forwarded them to our engineers for further investigation.

I measured the insync time after the initial re-indexing, it’s 22, a lot(!) but less than half of total consume after few hours.
