There should be an option to pause it and then you can check performance with it paused to determine the impact.

    And although I'm a "yank" I'll thank you nonetheless for your "royal" military service! I have a lot of respect for that. I work at a company that develops military communications equipment.
    Thank you, that's very kind of you, and lets forget the "Although I am a Yank" your still a brother in arms, don't forget you are our closest allies. and keep them Comms Set's coming, we can do with some good upto date equipment.
