I ran a concordance on the ESV, the first in a while. Several times the software froze for short periods. I even shut down the computer and then restarted, and ran the concordance with the same results. Eventually it finished, but I think it took too long considering the specs of the machine.

I am using a Ssd.

Lynden,

You probably know this, but 4GB is a very low amount of RAM to run 64-bit Logos on 64-bit Windows. SSD is great, but RAM is critical. I've never had great luck w/ Logos (4 or 5) on 4GB Windows 7 systems. Knowing that Concordance is very resource intensive on first run for a resource, I suspect it's even more crucial for this scenario.

If you know how to run Task Manager, add the "Page Faults" column to the details view and then see how rapidly it increases when running Concordance on another large resource (as well as monitoring RAM usage while it runs).

Thanks Donnie. But in my screen shot, it is only using 55% of Ram. I have seen it use up to 85-95 % during indexing without freezing.
