    just curious about performance

    I see a lot of out-of-topics above concerning Linux but I thought I'd ask here.

    I'm wondering what processor/published speed and the bogomips of your SC machine. Please feel free to include amount of memory and your ideas of how fast response is.

    If you're doing the vortexbox thing, it's on the status page.

    Otherwise, open a terminal and use:

    whatever your prompt is>cat<space> /proc/cpuinfo

    Thanks y'all.

    I'm running 1.8GHz P4 w/ 384MB RAM on a headless Ubuntu 8.10. bogomips: 3589.37

    It's currently only used for SC and as a LAMP webserver. I don't keep my music files on the server; they are currently stored on my Vista-64 gaming rig's data drive.

    Compared to when I ran SC on this same computer under WinXP (SB3 menus and the WebUI were very sluggish), responsiveness is lightning fast.

    just curious about performance

    Mine is a
    model name : AMD Athlon(tm) 3000+
    cpu MHz : 2166.528
    bogomips : 4337.62

    It has one GB of ram, nothing special.
    The box used to have six IDE disks, from when a 80GB disk was state of
    the art. These days, there is one SATA disk @ 300GB and some smaller IDE
    disks.

    ~800 albums with 10444 songs by 531 artists.
    all flac

    Old Dell desktop -

    2.53 Ghz Pentium 4
    5055 bogomips
    1gig memory
    2 500gig disks - on esdi, other sata
    Headless except when disaster strikes

    Debian lenny.

    (Had to add a sata pdi adapter - you can't buy big esdi disks anymore).

    Mostly runs SC and my internet radio ripping software, which often involves lame conversions.

    Also runs samba - its the backup server for my Windows machines.

    It's never busy.

    model name: Genuine Intel(R) CPU 230 @1.60GHz (ie, Atom single core)
    cpu MHz: 1595.992
    bogomips: 3191.98
    RAM: 2GB

    I think the response is good, even on the SC web ui. I'm running two SC servers on this box, with 7.3.3 on the host system and 7.4 nightlies on a virtual machine, to which I've allocated 400MB of RAM. The host system is Ubuntu 8.10 desktop, and the vm is Ubuntu 8.10 server. One 500GB 2.5" SATA laptop hard drive.

    I've run squeezecenter on completely under-powered machines like P2/P3 ~500mhz. Performance was perfectly acceptable for medium-sized (200 album) collections and a bit of to-FLAC transcoding. The only thing you really need is about 256MB of ram for the server to run in.

    BTW, bogomips is just like it says. Bogus. It's a completely useless non-metric of anything.

    Unless you have a gigantic 1000+ album collection, any PC will handle squeezecenter just fine on Linux.

    Of course its a bogus metric. But its easy to get.

    I would not call 1000+ large, since I have 800+
    I will claim that having one or more SqueezeBoxes causes you to buy more
    CDs.

    I ran for years on a P3-500 and it was fine. I think memory is much more
    important than CPU speed.

    The more recent versions of SqueezeCenter/SqueezeBoxServer take more
    resources than older versions, feature creep and all that. Its expected
    that SBS 8.0 will reduce the requirements once its released, but I don't
    expect it until late this year or early next.
