Check the jobs list (top right corner) for all users, all apps and see how many jobs you have running.
Then, use the SoS app to see how your indexing load is: https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/748/

For more help you'll have to provide more details.

Well, 100% of zero cores isn't much...

This was more of a horsepower issue rather.. we had to bump up the cores from 0 to 4 to enhance the performance.

Thanks for you assistance !
