Default Slow response, due to virtuoso-t, "kdeinit4: plasma-desktop"? HowTo fix? ; jor KUbuntu

About every 10 minutes, lasting about 1.5 minutes, virtuoso-t is running (maybe also "kdeinit4: plasma-desktop"), doing about 100 reads per second, & slowing things down right then, & I think also in the minutes following.

I think this might be the source of my system running so slow at times.

I think it might be causing other applications (ex, firefox, or a switch on the desktop to a different window, when I click to some other window), to have to do many disk reads to read in cached information, which has been lost from RAM when virtuoso-t just ran.

== What is v-t doing?
In the service of what other sw? Where can this be learned about? I didn't find a man page for v-t.

Where can settings for v-t, or the other sw, be viewed, & perhaps modified? In the "System Settings" program someplace?

Perhaps one thing that might improve system response times is to run v-t less often - maybe once per hour, or per day. Is this possible? Useful? A good idea? What would need to be done/modified to achieve that?

Is this KDE specific sw? Does GNOME also use this?

== What is "kdeinit4: plasma-desktop" doing?
In the service of what other sw?

Where can settings for "k4 p-d", or the other sw, be viewed, & perhaps modified? In the "System Settings" program someplace?

== System tray "Search Service" - does what?
Note: In the system tray, when this disk IO had been going on (starting at 1146 PM) for several minutes, I left clicked on the "Search Service" icon, selected "suspend file indexing", but the IO kept going for several minutes more, & from iotop it was v-t & k4 p-d running.

Does that suspend mean "don't start it again", or "immediately"? Because it didn't stop immediately, but continued for several more minutes.

== Where is the "file search" function?
In KDE 3, IIRC, there was an item in the KDE start button to do a file search.

I don't see a file search function anywhere under the K-Start button menu now.

If v-t & "Search Service" are doing an indexing, what sw _uses_ that index to let the user do a search of the files on the disk?


================================================== ===================
== System: KUbuntu 10.4 64 bit version, 4 core processor, 4GB RAM, TB hard disk

iotop -k -a
to monitor IO.

I see:
1) virtuoso-t has 3 running processes which total together the highest IO reads KB.
2) the 2nd highest read KB is "kdeinit4: plasma-desktop",
3) the 3rd highest read KB is firefox.

(see cuts from iotop below)
