View Full Version : Showing all songs takes VERY much time

2005-07-17, 15:19
Showing all my about 5600 songs (e.g. using the link under browse albums) takes about 4:40 minutes in Slimserver. On the Squeezebox it also take several minutes when browsing for songs. There seems to be some caching since the second time it takes between 10 and 30 seconds. But this is still a very long time.
I use MediaMonkey to organize my music files and with MediaMonkey it takes only about 2-3 seconds (!) to display all songs. Is there some improvement possible in Slimserver? Since the songs are organized in a database it should be much faster to show a list of all songs. Since my hard disk is working very much when I click on the "all songs" link it seems to me as if the song list is not created from the database but that all songs are read from disk. Is that correct (and if yes, is that necessary)?

I use the latest nightly build and have Windows XP Home, an Intel Pentium 4 2.66 GHz and 1GB RAM.
