SharePoint Search use too much resource

Sometime when I using SharePoint Dev machine, the resources of the Dev machine could be limited.

1. You can disable search feature by setting wrong account/password for Search host controller and Search server 15.


Noderunner processes take too much memory

Get-SPEnterpriseSearchService | Set-SPEnterpriseSearchService –PerformanceLevel “Reduced”



change noderunner config file

memoryLimitMegabytes value as 200

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Servers\15.0\Search\Runtime\1.0\noderunner.exe.config

(if you reduce this memory size the crawl would be timed out even though you reinstall search service)
