You can artificially throttle indexing by passing --throttle=value where value is in the

change this value if you want to prevent noisy fans or hot laptops arising from cpu
intensive indexing. Tracker should have a negligible impact on the system (as it is scheduled)
so you can safely work with it on full throttle without experiencing slow downs.
