How to Adjust CPU Cores Number

You can adjust the number of CPU cores to be used by the IDE when running the active tasks (for example, indexing header files, updating symbols, and so on) in order to keep the performance properly balanced between AppCode and other applications running on your machine.

Set up the CPU cores number

  1. Press ⌃ ⇧ A or choose Help | Find Action from the main menu. In the popup that opens, start typing Registry, select the corresponding item and press .

    Registry action
  2. In this dialog, start typing cidr.indexer.thread.count. The IDE highlights the corresponding key.

    The Registry dialog

    Click the Value field of the highlighted string and enter the desired number of CPU cores assuming the following:

    • Negative value N means that the actual number of CPU cores will be reduced by N to determine how many cores will be used. For example, for 8 cores CPU the value -1 means, that 7 cores shall be used.

    • Zero value means that every available core shall be used.

    • Positive value determines the cores number to be used directly.
