Beagle will likely hammer your CPU at least at first as it sets up its
crawler and starts indexing.  It should throttle itself so that it is
using less CPU as it goes, however.  That said, it's a pretty IO
intensive app and if CPU power is required to decrypt everything as it
goes, that probably doesn't help things.
