Kill process when client not open?

Post by nathan323 » Wed Aug 16, 2017 12:36 am

I've just gotten an SSD and noticed how fast the database update is on first start of prog - doesn't seem necessary to have process running when not actively performing a search? Is this accurate? Is there an option to kill process in between uses?

Tools>Options>General>UI uncheck Run in Background

There is overhead in writing out the database each time Everything ends, extra writes to the SDD, overhead in starting the process, etc.
Unless you are a very infrequent user or your system is constrained it might just be better to leave it running.

Ahh, right there in front of me.

Ok thanks for the info. Might leave it running after all.
