My indexing seems to be normal up to when it reaches 99%. Then it takes over an hour to finish. During that time my computer is bugged down so that I can hardly work on it. It doesn't seem to be hard on CPU usage, but on hard drive usage. Maybe someone knowledgable can look at my logs and see whether everything is as it should be. Thanks for any help.

I'm running Logos 7.3.0.0047 on Mac OS 10.11.6

I have the following: Indexing is normal but then stuck at 99% for about 5-10 min with the indexer taking all CPU and cooling fan coming on. But I can still work on my computer. I have a SSD so I am not sure about hard disk usage.

I've been noticing the same sort of things recently on my systems (both Mac and PC). I notice it more on my Mac because I'm on it more often though.

What it USED to do on my Macbook: High CPU temps + fan speed throughout the indexing.

What it has been doing RECENTLY on my Macbook: High CPU temps + fan speed when it reaches 99% and hangs there for several minutes before finishing.

Schumitinu:
My indexing seems to be normal up to when it reaches 99%.

Indexing at 99 % is combining many index files into one so task intensively interacts with storage, which bogs down computer.

One suggestion is replacing hard disk with solid state disk (SSD); personally like SATA III SSD's with write speed greater than 500 MB/sec (about seven times faster than hard disk: 5400 RPM has 71 MB/sec at best). The 2016 MacBook Pro models with touch bar have PCIe storage with write speed up to 2200MB/sec and read speed up to 3100MB/sec (much faster).

For longer battery life, laptops tend to have 5400 RPM hard disks. Replacing hard drive with fast SSD should reduce indexing 99 % time from an hour to nine minutes while allowing computer to be usable.

I Fix It has Mac laptop repair guides => https://www.ifixit.com/Device/Mac_Laptop so can if drive can be replaced plus what's involved. The MacBook Pro 9.2 model was released in 2012, whose hard drive can be replaced. Apple Disk Utility can copy partition(s) between internal and external. Hard drive could become backup device.

With v7.3 Logos began to build an additional index file (tdi) for use with an improved indexer search engine (not yet implemented). The log shows it took a staggering 1 hr 57 min 30 sec to build after taking 20 min for normal Library indexing. In a similar situation to yours (one resource indexing) my tdi took 2 min 30 sec whilst it only took 1 min 15 sec in a full re-index!

Now, yours could be a one-off, so please supply logs after the next indexing. How many resources do you have?

At least there is some explanation for what I experience.

About 3500

I'll do that. Thanks for looking at my logs.

About 3500

That is double the number of resources I have, so the tdi should only have taken 4 - 5 min to build.

So keep logging enabled and submit logs after the next indexing.

Here is another log. Downloaded 8 books this morning and then let it index.

The tdi took about the same time (1h 56m 54s) so I think you should contact Techical Support as it is excessive.
