View Full Version : Slow startup and scan

2006-04-16, 10:13

I just updated from 5.1.1 to 6.2.1, and the server is taking forever to start up and scan my music library. I've got around 6000 tracks (about 600 albums), and slimserver is running on a linux server, P3/550, 128 Mb RAM. It's currently been at 95% CPU for the past 45 minutes.

I don't have any dodgy recursive links in my music library (no links at all, in fact). 5.1.1 would scan this library in five minutes or so, iirc. (edit: just reinstalled 5.1.1, and it did indeed complete a full scan in about five minutes.)

Incidentally, if I try to access Internet Radio, it seems to crash the server as well - slightly annoying since that was the main reason I finally got around to updating.

Any ideas? Is this server just too old / slow to cope?

Your amount of memory is borderline. I'm not too familiar with Linux memory requirements but I don't believe they're so much better than Windows that you could run an OS and SlimServer on 128 MB.
