View Full Version : Painfully Slow Slimserver
Accessing slimserver through firefox or explorer is painfully slow. I need help.
1T Readynas NV running latest build of Raidiator
Gigabit wired eithernet to the ReadyNas
5k songs many in Flac
Browsing the HTML interface takes about 3-8 seconds per button click!
How can I get my Slimserver to run at speeds that would allow me to browse my music collection at a non-painfully slow way?
Try Moose - http://www.rusticrhino.com/drlovegrove/
It's a windows client that is far quicker than the web interface as it accesses the slimserver DB directly.
The Infrant Forums are quite a good source of ReadyNAS info: http://www.infrant.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=22
I agree with you completely. Getting the new NAS NV+ and two more SB's to go with the one I had was a huge step forward for me. A central media server that utilized RAID 5 and woudld work over my wireless G network was what I was looking for. This bundle is fantastic to date but the speed of communication using Safari is a complete surprise, sloooooow. I can't believe I bought the world's greatest newtork media solution and stepped back 8 years in terms of network commuication speed to a server.
By the way innovation, your news, while mildly interesting, does nothing to address the problem of addressing the Slimserver on an NAS NV+ from a MACINTOSH.
I would appreciate anyone offering usable advice to Mac users. The NV+ is supposed to offer major enhancements for use with the Mac.
Using either the FrontView or the SlimServer interface is painfully slow on the Mac.
I have a 2 GB MBP, my partner has a 2 GM PB G4.
We use a Linksys Wireless G Router.
Slimserver web performance will improve once you're running it on a computer with decent specs. That precludes running it on the NAS device itself.
It would be nice to have a one-box solution, but that's not possible unless that box is a decent PC/Mac.
It was too slow for me. Look at my little poll I started here: http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?t=29560
Of the repsondants to date, 10 are running SS on their ReadyNAS and two have moved it to a pc. I was one of those who WAS running it on the ReadyNAS but last week moved it to a fast P4 pc and am now a VERY happy camper! see my comments on the above link
One thing to try is to stop the std MySQL from running as Slimserver uses its own instance. The script to start it up is in /opt/etc/init.d.
I did this, and my Slug is now quite usable. However, I only have about 60 albums on there right now.
