When Logos updates and indexes it consumes to much of my processor resources so I have to pause for 4 hours. 

It would be helpful if there were a way to adjust how much of available resources Logos can use.

Welcome Big Smile

Curious about hardware processor and storage device (hard disk OR solid state disk) ?

Thankful for Faithlife improving indexing for Solid State Disks (SSD) so Logos/Verbum can be used during indexing.

Personally manage when to download updates, which is followed by indexing (so can choose when indexing happens)

Keep Smiling Smile

Thank you for taking time and the screenshot in settings. That will help. 

To your question. My computer has a hard drive with an intel I7 processor.

Thanks again and God bless!

Logos Help Center (LHC) article => Recommended Hardware and Software includes 512 GB NVMe SSD (Solid State Disk).

Thread => Making Logos/Verbum 8 Faster - Brief Guide - 2019 Dec edition includes:

SineNomine:
1. Replace your hard drive with an SSD. This solves most speed-related problems instantly and permanently.

Hard drive design is similar to road construction with one lane switching of directions at specified times: can read OR write to disk platter(s), but not both at the same time. During indexing, hard drive is like a long queue of vehicles waiting in both directions so computer feels sluggish. In contrast, SSD is similar to a multi-lane highway with fast traffic going both ways in many lanes. Newer NVMe SSD can transfer data over 50 times faster than hard drive while older NVMe is 20 times faster (so 20 seconds of writing to hard drive takes a second to SSD). Thankful for noticeable speed improvement in an older laptop with an Intel i7-3610QM by replacing hard drive with a Sata III SSD (about 7 times faster than hard drive).
