I built last digikam-git, issue seems solved. I rebuilt fingerprints for
19.000 images. It took only 260M, certainly because i already did it
with digikam 6.1. I think, may be i'm wrong, it takes more ressources
with big files/images. This is my case. I have images (png xcf) files
bigger than 120 M
I have to say that I run lts 4.19 kernel. I upgraded it just before last
  digikam build. May be issue came from old kernel, i'll never know it...
