Hey guys,
my GT-N9005 has this problem
"the program indexservice was arrested" (in Italiano " il programma IndexService stato arrestato")
the message shows up every now and continuously, does anyone know why?

--Update--
The service scan the file pdf, doc, xls, etc (no media) possibly for S-Finder

--Update 2--
Ok, the Indexservice arrested if file (pdf, doc, xls) is > 200MB

I've fixed mine now. I used a USB card holder to copy my card to then formated my SD & put everything back on one folder at a time.
Once the folder was identified I put small groups of files on until phone froze & eventuality identified the file.
The culprit was a 2.74mb .PDF file that contained text & pictures.

(That file had been on a Note 2 & a Note 1 before that with no issues.)

Sent from my SM-N9005 using xda app-developers app

I had bunch of files in Dropbox including large pdf files (from 400mb), I disabled the Document Sync and the problem went away...

For me the culprit was a corrupted pdf file. My Note3 was fine after I deleted that file.
Moreover I found that the indexservice process is taking more cpu and time when I have more number of pdf files in my memory card.
So, right now either you can put less number of pdf files on your device to avoid the lag or just wait till the indexing completes.

After the indexing completes, the device works as wonderfully as it was working before inserting my memory card.

Hope I helped...Cheers!!!
