Each time PHPstorm starts or indexes, it lags the whole computer

Even music that is playing is stuttering the entire time when PHPstorm is indexing. It's a powerful ultrabook with 16GB of ram, i7 processor and ssd drive. Why is this happening? I have already adjusted the settings in PhpStorm64.exe.vmoptions to:

-Xms128m

-Xmx4096m

-XX:MaxPermSize=350m

-XX:ReservedCodeCacheSize=240m

-XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC

-XX:SoftRefLRUPolicyMSPerMB=50
-ea

-Dsun.io.useCanonCaches=false

-Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true

-XX:+HeapDumpOnOutOfMemoryError

-XX:-OmitStackTraceInFastThrow


I think it's just the CPU usage that's slowing everything down. Any way to fix this? I'm using a Homestead virtual machine, if that is even relevant.

Hello,

Are your project files located on a local disk or in the VM/remote share?
