View Full Version : Scan status says "finished" - but is still "Running"

2008-04-24, 14:52

On SC7.0 on Vista, the Status tab shows that the library scan has finished:

"SqueezeCenter has finished scanning your music collection.06:08:50"

but the details indicate that the Merge Various Artists part is still running e.g.

"Merge Various Artists (233 of 1905) Running 05:38:01"

SC is set to clean and rescan nightly and the Merge VA progress number changes each time with no files added/changed.

The scanner.log just has a couple of entries (undated):

frame 1: Slim::Schema::throw_exception (/<C:\PROGRA~1\SQUEEZ~1\server\scanner.exe>DBIx/Class/Schema.pm line 606)
frame 2: DBIx::Class::Schema::txn_do (scanner.pl line 216)
frame 3: (eval) (scanner.pl line 216)
frame 4: main::main (scanner.pl line 345)

Any ideas what is wrong?

I just discovered the root cause of the scanning problem - I disabled the McAfee on-access virus scanner and the scan now completes successfully (including Artwork Scan and DB optimisation).

Directory Scan (22200 of 22200) Complete 00:26:29
Playlist Scan (1 of 1) Complete 00:00:00
Merge Various Artists (1910 of 1910) Complete 00:00:58
Artwork Scan (2065 of 2065) Complete 00:04:22
Database Optimize ( of ) Complete 00:00:24
SqueezeCenter has finished scanning your music collection. Total Time:00:32:13

The issue now is that I can't seem to exclude my music folder from the scanner. :-(
Can anyone recommend one that works with SC?

There's a thread just below discussing anti-virus, I (and several others) recommended NOD32.

Yes, I was experiencing similar behaviour before it was due to McAfee VirusScan preventing SqueezeCenter from writing certain files to disk.

As you discovered by disabling it, VirusScan is the culprit. To solve this problem, I set my it to scan executables and documents only. Alternatively, you can tell McAffee to ignore MYI file extensions.

From the VirusScan Console: "All Processes > Detection > Exclusions > Add".

Type in the file extensions, ie MYI, and you are good to go. Scans should complete no problem.
