    Is that 38 hours? Yes it is. What takes SlimServer so long?

    Logitechmediaserver-git on a archlinux running on qem.

    It's the artwork pre-caching that's taking the vast majority (about 99%) of that 38 hours.

    Do you have a lot of very large image files of cover art in your music collection?
    Duet x 3, via various hi-fi. LMS on Raspberry Pi OS (Debian 10) on a Pi4.

    Most likely the scanner isn't really running any more. Any last words in
    server.log or scanner.log?

    You might need to kill the scanner and delete library.db.

    I had this problem recently with a test set up on my PC

    LMS defaults to using mysqueezebox.com to resize artwork and as I was not logged in this fails effectively stalling the scan.

    Make sure you've selected "Use Logitech Media Server to resize artwork":

    Please note that this setting has nothing to do with your local artwork
    or the scanner. It's only being used to resize online artwork on request.
