I have a 27MB iTunes Music Library.xml file. How long should I expect it to take to import my play counts, last played times, and ratings from this file?
My server's been spinning for a while, but it still says "Importing from iTunes...". I'm not sure if I should expect a message saying that the settings were properly imported or that the import failed. If I leave the Plugins page and return to it the "Importing from iTunes..." message is gone. I don't know if the process is still running in the background or if it stops when I leave the Plugins page.
Where is the information that is read in from iTunes Music Libarary.xml actually stored (i.e., what's the file name)? Is it SlimServer\server\Cache\MySQL\ibdata1? Mine's kinda chunky at 85MB.

The only way to currently see when it is finished is to goto http://localhost:9000/log.txt. In this log you will see a message like this when it's finished:
TrackStat:iTunes: Import completed in 345 seconds
My own iTunes library is 4.2 MB and if I remember correctly it takes a bit less time than the standard SlimServer scanning. The information is stored in the MySQL database, I'm not completely sure exactly which file this means but it is the files in the "SlimServer\server\Cache\MySQL\" directory. You should start to see your iTunes rating in the TrackStat user interface as soon as they has been imported.Erland Isaksson (My homepage)

There wasn't a line like that in my log file, but it could have been overwritten by the time I checked though. I'm not sure how long a log file survives or is overwritten. (A new log file with every SlimServer restart?) In any case, it did take roughly as long I should probably expect (about as long as a scan and as long as it takes iTunes to read a new 27MB .itl file). In my case that's about 25 minutes.
After the import completed, I'm able to see the play counts and ratings from iTunes in SlimServer.
