What is this? Why is the cpu usage over 100%? Is it problematic?

I was facing tracker processes spiking with a high CPU usage followed exits with failure exit code, especially
tracker-miner-fs-3. I followed this suggestion from @evert and removed tracker cache. That was enough for my case.
rm -r ~/.cache/tracker
Maybe for my case running
tracker3 reset -s (to reset the filesystem cache) could be enough, but, yeah, cleaning the whole cache worked.
