What's the difference between these (100) and (101) indexing processes?

Having finally created a successful backup to Time Capsule using Time Machine under Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5 (11G63), I'm still experiencing longer than expected indexing wait times. These are recorded in Console ("backupd") as "Waiting for index to be ready (100)" and "Waiting for index to be ready (101)." While the process/function is being performed, a related entry is recorded in Console every minute (example follows).

My curiosity is specific: what is the difference between "101" and "100"?

Hi I am just trawling old questions and am wondering if you solved this, or if you looked at pondini.org/TM/D2.html this covers your problem specifically, however does not answer your question about 100 v 101 messages. –  Deesbek Oct 17 '13 at 21:32

The answer to your question is that the difference between these two codes (100 and 101) is not publicly documented by apple.

https://discussions.apple.com/message/23429422?ac_cid=op123456#23429422

However pondini.org/TM/D2.html gives reasons why and how to fix those errors, and the issues you are experiencing.

Hi Deesbeck, Apple support was able to solve much of the issue, but even the techs there were never able to learn the difference between "100" and "101." Thank you for your interest. –  GeneJ Oct 18 '13 at 22:57
