The Nepomuk Strigi service uses the libstreamanalyzer library provided by Strigi to analyze all files in the configured folders and store their metadata in the Nepomuk repository.
The service monitors certain events such as a change in the battery status (will not index when running on batteries) or if the hard disk space is running low. In the latter case indexing is suspended until hard disk space is freed.
The service provides a D-Bus interface org.kde.nepomuk.services.nepomukstrigiservice which is exported at nepomukstrigiservice. It allows to suspend/resume the indexing, index specific folders or files and informs about the current status of Strigi.
This service is supposed to be configured via the Nepomuk KCM.
