How to reduce CPU usage

Recommended Posts


I have a folder which is about 900GB and 200 000 files/folders.

Everytime Resilio runs an indexing operation the CPU jumps up to aroung 33-35% and stays there until finished, which takes a while until it is finished. This is on my laptop, so it kills my battery.

Is there nay way to reduce this cpu usage

You don't say what OS you're running, but have you tried increasing the folder_rescan_interval setting (i.e. so that Sync re-scans folders less frequently)

You could also try adjusting other settings such as setting "disk_low_priority" to "true" in order to concede resources to other applications, etc

Also, are you using encrypted folders? If so, these will consume more CPU, so you could consider removing and re-adding these are regular folders instead.
