            Bug ID: 42188
           Summary: --background-index reindexing entire workspace every
                    time it's opened
           Product: clang-tools-extra
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P
         Component: clangd
          Assignee: unassignedclangbugs at nondot.org

Enabling the --background-index command in clangd causes the entire index to be

even if the timestamp hasn't changed. This makes clangd effectively unusable on
laptops for large projects, as the entire system can become unresponsive during
the re-indexing.

What should happen:
Only files whose timestamps have changed since the last index should be
