I downloaded the Ethereum Wallet a few weeks ago. Since then it has been syncing with the network (I don't have it running all the time). As today the block download progress is 3.700.000/3.912.000.
I been researching how to make the process faster and the general answer is that the process is slow because is very cpu intensive, which brings up my question.
While the app is running in my computer the cpu usage doesn't reach 15%, the network usage is less than 1mbps (of 300 available) and the disk read and write speeds are around 10MB/s.
So I do not understand what is being the bottleneck. Maybe the program itself has a limit assigned in the use of resources.
So I was wondering if that is the case and how I could make Ethereum Wallet take advantage of my computer resources to achieve a faster syncing.
I'm running Geth 1.6.5
