gvfsd-metadata - Metadata daemon for gvfs

gvfs-metadata [OPTION...]

gvfsd-metadata is a daemon acting as a write serialiser to the internal gvfs metadata storage. It is autostarted by GIO clients when they make metadata changes. Read operations are done by client-side GIO code directly, and don't require the daemon to be running.

The gvfs metadata capabilities are used by the nautilus file manager, for example.
