As I continue to scan more and more of my CDs (over 1,000, I an at 500-something) the browsing performance of Slimbox-Slimserver when I go from Browse to Browse Folders is becoming very cumbersome. There's a looong wait as things seem to spin up. Any performance tweak suggestion? I use an external NAS, and have already allocated some extra memory blocks to Slimserver... anyone have any experience suggestions etc with parameters that greatly improve browsing speed?

Thanks!

Browse Music Folder is always slower because it does what it says instead of
leveraging the database. Browse Artists/Albums/Genres/New Music/Years should
be faster.

There is an enhancement request that browse music folder have an option to use the cache. Or that another equivalent function that does use the cache be created.

You can vote for it.
