You know that, but akonadi has no way of knowing it (esp. if you're using an external db server that other apps could connect to too).

I agree that akonadi has a long-standing dire need for job manager interface a la the activity window that Apple's has or used to have; something with a big button to stop all processing, and buttons for each individual job to stop or pause it. (Where a job is something that could be a collaboration between several agents; there's probably little point in continuing a filter job after you cancel the fetch that feeds it.)

This does remind me a bit of KDevelop's scanner/parser, which by default will do a "quick" scan through all files belonging to that project you just opened, even if all that parsing data is already cached. In that case the scan will take a *lot* longer if there's no such cached data; maybe that's true for akonadi too?
