If you are trying to set up a new node following the instructions below, you will go through the IBD process at the first run, and it may take a considerable amount of time since a new node has to download the entire block chain (which is roughly 195 gigabytes now).

During the download, there could be a high usage for the network and CPU (since the node has to verify the blocks downloaded), and the client will take up an increasing amount of storage space (reduce storage provides more details on reducing storage).

So your wallet may not count new payments/spendings into the balance.

If you are using Bitcoin Core GUI, you can monitor the progress of IBD in the status bar (left bottom corner).
