No worries.

You can certainly do other things while the LDM is running... the LDM runs
very efficiently and uses as few system resources as possible.

Your comment prompts the following comment:

- the LDM is designed to run all of the time.  The data available in the
  IDD is delivered in real-time, and there is no facility for providing
  old data

The point is that you will want to run an LDM continuously on a machine
to get the type(s) of data you want/need.  It is then up to you as to
what you want to do with the data (e.g., convert to a form usable by
whatever application you will use to analyze the data; save off data
into local archives; scour the data off of disk; etc.).
