Well, you could but that would not make sense, 100% CPU usage is really the
best you can get. Why would you like to make things worse artificially?

That said, you might still want to restrict the number of threads that have
access to the Lucene index (typically by using a fixed threadpool) to a bit
more than the number of CPUs you have. This will still allow for 100% CPU
usage while reducing context switching and causing Lucene to have fewer
thread-local objects, which means potentially better throughput and memory
