View Full Version : maximum tracks?



2004-03-19, 06:55
Are there any thoughts about the *practical* maximum of the tracks the
slimserver can handle smoothly?
I am reaching 2800 hours / 15.000 tracks now, and have noticed a change in
behaviour:
The Squeezebox itself keeps playing the music smoothly, but the server app
has some serious trouble updating the database.
New music and folders are not automatically added to the database; a rescan
is needed and takes a considerable amout of time (not very practical to do
after every single addition)
The option 'Rescan database'on the Squeezebox itself stopped working: it
seems to time out with the 'lost contact with server' message (contact is
restored immediately after that, but there's no rescan)

I wonder about what I could do about this. Does anyone else recognise this
problem?

Any suggestion will be appreciated

Some details about my setup:
AMD Athlon XP3000+ 2100Mhz fsb400 processor
512 Mb Ram
WinXP Pro
WD 200 Gb external harddisk (firewire connection)

Wireless SB connection

Thanks!!
