View Full Version : Browse Genres > Genre > All Albums, very slow

One of my most frequent menu choices is Browse Genres > Genre > All Albums. However listing All Albums is terribly slow (can be as long as a minute), leading to 99% CPU usage and audio drop-outs. Most other menu options seem sufficiently fast (now I have a dedicated SlimServer machine) apart from (possibly) Browse Albums > All Songs, Browse Artists > All Albums. Strangely the behaviour does not appear consistent. The wait appears to be longest the first time a particular menu is called (is this possible?).

I only use the remote. I just tried Browse Genres > All Albums on the web interface and it seemed OK.

I realise that the listing is returning a fair few results, but should I expect it to be this slow, and for CPU usage to stay at 99%? Thanks.

813 Flac Albums

MC: Try updating to SlimServer 6.2 beta, which has a number of
performance improvements, including this kind of browsing situation.

Thanks,
dean
