Hi, On my Ubuntu 8.10, gvfsd takes up 128.6MB memory. What is the process doing actually? Can I reduce the memory it takes? Thanks and regards!...

Re: Stopping gvfsd gracefully
gvfs I am a bit more familiar with, it's the GNOME Virtual File System, its related to fuse, and applications use it to create virtual file systems. Google for "gvfs" and you'll find a lot.
Reading the link, it seems you must have some apllication that uses gvfs running. I don't think its only gnome itself, but it can be.
How did you check for the memory it is using, so I my compare with my machine?

have you done a system update yet? I would try to update to 9.1 or 10.04, probably would help out a great deal. gvfsd is the daemon of gvfs and it has known issues of doing exactly what your talking about. havent seen a fix in google but I would assume that the newer versions of ubuntu have dealt with this issue.

gvfsd-metadata using more cpu than anyother process....
i didn't like how much cpu time gvfsd-metadata was using.
Also, i didn't find fuse of any use. i installed it trying to mount an iso as a dvd and it Didn't work for that.
i could already mount an iso as a directory (folder), so fuse was once again, useless.
i had problems with fuse in the past messing up my mount table and moving mounts out of order
( it would try and mount a drive in a folder before the drive that contained the folder was mounted... )
fuse sucked back then, it sucks now .
fuse / fuseiso / gvfsd-* is now gone and my memory / cpu usage is back to norm...
