Is it nepomuk or strigi using the CPU? (In subject it is Nepomuk). If you are 
using with Strigi with Nepomuk (default in KDE4 )  make sure, that you are 
using the Sesame2 backend with Nepomuk.

The other option Redland is very slow. 

You can check that by starting "sopranocmd" from konsole without any 

It will display the help.  Where it explains the "--backend" switch  it should  
say something like "Possible backends are: sesame2  redland"   

If sesame2 is there you are using it. If not that is it what causes the slow 
indexing and high cpu usage.
