Throttle ShareDrive Crawls

I've got a SP crawl source pointed at a shared drive.  It does an incremental at noon, finishes in about 45 minutes - while most are at lunch.  Problem is not all are at lunch and it pegs the CPU of the file server - user access is impacted.

I see in throttling that you can specify a url and how many documents can be requested, but how to I set an impact rule for a shared drive?

Thanks!

You wouldn't be able to throttle it for the specific content source but if you really need to reduce server load, you can try to run the Set-SPEnterpriseSearchService PowerShell command.  Add the -PerformanceLevel parameter with PartlyReduced or even Reduced for the value.  Default value is Maximum.

You can read about it here and decide if it's right for you:
