    Slim server on W2000 server pegging CPU

    I recently installed version 5.1 to W2000 server machine with 500Meg.
    RAM & P3 733. It should be serving SlimP3 and Squeezebox.

    The problem is that upon the service starting up it appears to work fine
    with a rough utilization of 70% during initial scan of library and then
    settles down to almost nothing. Without fail when I come back within 24
    hours the CPU will be pegged at 100% (or 99%) with the culprit being the
    slim service. This happens whether or not I have used one of the players
    during the time period after the service was started.

    I am also not sure but the network activity seems a bit high as if the
    application is constantly trying to do something even when none of the
    players are active. This may be normal, but the pegged CPU I am sure is
    not.

    Please help, since the last version I had installed (5.0.1, I think) did
    not stay running as a service and did that thing others have mentioned
    where the songs just stop part way through and the next one starts. I
    was waiting for this new release to get everything up and running
    smoothly, but now I am not sure what to do.....

    TIA

    Slim server on W2000 server pegging CPU

    Hi TIA,

    That shouldn't happen. Is this machine able to access the Internet? I
    wonder if it's getting stuck trying to connect to SlimDevices to check
    for an update. Try disabling this feature:

    Squeezebox Home -> Server Settings -> Behavior -> Software Updates

    And let us know if that fixes it for you.
