View Full Version : Server Blackout using 'Search for Track'

If I select "Search for Song", enter some info and then right arrow the
display says 'searching' and then the server loses contact with all clients
- the displays go blank for nearly 15 minutes :-( and any music playing on
any of the players stops. The memory footprint doesn't increase on the
machine substantially (actually it increases about 100K/minute) but CPU goes
up to about 40% allocated to Slim.exe. There is no memory paging. It does
find the correct tracks .. If I wish to search again I have to endure the 15
minute blackout again. This really makes searching for songs unuseable.

Any thoughts 512MB RAM is the highest my motherboard will take.
Should the search be perhaps yielding time more frequently to keep the
players alive - and is 15 mins about right for such a search ? :-(

Win XP, application (non service) version latest nightly with a
large library 100K tracks, P4 1Ghz with 512MB RAM no other apps running, 6
players , library cache operative. Slim.exe occupies 250MB.

Hi Kevin,

That certainly shouldn't happen. I'm looking into it now. Could you
file a bug on http://bugs.slimdevices.com/ so we can track it?
