I think I answered that question just the other day.... privately...
No, there is nothing in Lucene to help you with CPU utilization.
However, if you are running this on a UNIX box of some kind, you can (re)nice the process
and thus lower its priority, giving other processes more time with the CPU.  Windows may have
something similar.

Subject: Lucene CPU Utilization


I am building a Lucene index with over a million   
documents retrieved from database. I am running the
application on Unix, I am getting a 100% CPU
utilization the moment the application start.
The application creates a list of small indices in a
temp directory then merge them all in the main index
Is there any way I can tune the indexing process and
reduce the CPU utilization.                         
Thanks much.                              

Amany M.
