spotlight – msd_stores consuming twice the amount of memory than I have available on my mac

There's only 16GB RAM on this computer

There’s only 16Gb of RAM on this computer (quad-core 15″ Macbook Pro) but Activity Monitor is saying mds_store is using 32Gb. Rendering in Sublime and Brave browser when I scroll and type was lagging considerably. It’s been indexing for at least the last two days.

sudo mdutil -a -i off slowed the fan speed but the lag still persists, and Activity Monitory memory is still at 32Gb.

After that, I run sudo fs_usage -w -f filesys mds_stores and I get a lot of Backup and Sync and Brave Browser with /dev/disk1s4 /System/Volumes/VM/swapfile0. I quit Backup and Sync (using Brave to write this) and there’s still no change to performance or memory.

Also, after upgrading to Big Sur, Spotlight basically useless since it’s so slow.

How to make spotlight search more effective at locating commonly used directories?

Spotlight Search – cmd + space – doesn’t seem to find the Applications folder, despite it being on of the most well-known and important folders on the macOS:

enter image description here

Same happens in a quick search for the Documents folder (bizarrely, it even brings up google searches for the term ‘documents folder’):

enter image description here

Is there a way to make Spotlight Search prioritise commonly used macOS
folders/programs/settings for quick access?

software recommendation – How to find out, what I am able to look for in Spotlight

I am looking for a very good documentation or tool, that help’s me to make better searches in spotlight.I have found some descriptions like: “https://developer.apple.com/library/archive/documentation/CoreServices/Reference/MetadataAttributesRef/Reference/CommonAttrs.html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/TP40001694-SW1”, there I can find e.g. kMDItemKind, but what is possible to define as Kind ?

I know in I can define a search like “kind:folder”, but what’s possible behind kind instead of folder, how can I find out what I am able to search for ? “kind:” stands here as a example, but there are much more keywords, but I want to know what are the possible values for this keywords.

Either a documentation/manual/reference about the keywords or a tool, that evaluates the possible values out of my spotlight database.

spotlight – Excessive Logs from MDS in Console

On my Mac, In the Console, there is an excessive amount of logging from the ‘mds’ process.

mds is the service that runs Spotlight. It is also integral to Time Machine, apparently.

Small sample (In the last 8 minutes, over 240,000 messages have been logged):

You can see from the timestamps that these are occurring frequently (every 0.001 or so).

Note: I enabled Private Data in the Console using the instructions here: https://superuser.com/a/1532052/1247878 .

This issue this is causing me (other than being unsightly) is that a diagnostic tool for my VPN wants to collect Console logs over the past day, and the report file it’s generating grows to double-digit GB sizes, making it nearly impossible to submit to the network team for troubleshooting.

Is there any way to reduce mds’ logging level? I could turn off the indexing, but then that would affect Time Machine.

spotlight – Problems with icon

I have downloaded VS Code on my new Mac mini, but the icon seems to be some random dots. My Mac mini has the M1 Chip.

Here is a picture of the icon in Spotlight:
Image of Spotlight

A few steps I have tried:

  • Restarting the Mac
  • Reinstalling VS Code
  • Trying with a different user
  • Contacted Apple Support, response was, “it is not our product (vs code) so we can no fix it”

Is there anyway to fix this?
