I've been having this problem for quiet a while now, but just found out that; As soon as I start the SlimServer my CPU usage grows to sometimes about 80% more or less. Has anyone any idea what could be the problem, cause I didn't have this problem in the beginning when I had my Slimp3 Player. Any comment would be highly appreciated. thanx

SlimServer 6.2.1
Mac OS X 10.4.3
iMac 17" 1 Ghz, 768 Mb RAM

It's probably scanning. Wait a while (until it says it's stopped scanning) and see what happens.

I don't think it's scanning anymore, but still perl takes about 70% CPU more or less. The only way to stop this is to stop the server.

If you go into Activity Monitor and get a process sample for SlimServer/perl - what does it say?

It's working ok know, after I disabled the "Look for artwork" option. Not sure if that's the reason, but anyway. Thanks for your replies
