The web interface of 2005-03-19 nightly build of 6.x is completely
unresponsive during playback.

This is a machine dedicated to slimserver so there isn't much running on
it besides slimserver and related utilities.

top shows a load average of 1.00 and slimserver is using 97% of the CPU:

PID USER PR NI VIRT RES SHR S %CPU %MEM TIME+
COMMAND

3442 slimserv 25 0 53220 50m 4344 R 97.2 10.3 29:18.69
slimserver.pl

4623 slimserv 16 0 3720 2036 2036 S 1.7 0.4 0:02.57
lame

4622 slimserv 15 0 3908 660 688 S 0.7 0.1 0:01.37
flac

I did not have this problem with previous releases.

Avi - There have been changes to the schema that neccessitate a rebuild of
the database. In addition, even if that rebuild isn't neccessary, when
SlimServer first starts up, it scans your music library for any files that no
longer exist, and removes them from the database.

There was supposed to be a big kaboom.

It is done rebuilding the database an hour and a half ago. This is the
load *after* it finished building the database.

Something I forgot to mention. When I am not using the web interface,
the numbers change dramatically:

PID USER PR NI VIRT RES SHR S %CPU %MEM TIME+
COMMAND


4669 slimserv 16 0 3720 2036 2036 S 2.0 0.4 0:03.09
lame


3442 slimserv 15 0 53220 50m 4344 S 1.7 10.3 47:11.00
slimserver.pl


4668 slimserv 15 0 3908 660 688 S 1.0 0.1 0:01.53
flac

I very happy to say that the performance problems I had with the
2005-03-19 6.0x release while connected to the server via a browser
disappeared when I installed the 2005-03-20 release. Out of curiosity,
did you find the problem or was it just a Gremlin that got into the
build process? :-)


Thanks,

Avi
