Questions / Re: Database speed
« on: June 07, 2015, 05:08:37 »
thanks, I'll give it a try.

Sorry for changing topic, but just wanted to know how the state is with playlists? Last I looked it appeared the standard m3u playlists are not that easy to create and use in GMB. Is that still the case?
Or should I start a new thread here with that kind of questions?

Must be the loading of artwork or some other resources.
The mem usage is about 350MB (out of 2GB), so not much swapping.
Subsequent searches are much faster. So it looks like a disk access is needed at startup to show some album cover and then the spin up time of the USB HDD is quite long.
now that I sort of know what goes on it's easy to adapt to it.
Thanks for you help.

I have over 100k items in the database. The search is fine even when using all possible search fields.
It's the first time lookup after power up (which is always standby in my case).
I might have been able to pinpoint it a bit more. It seems to be the disk access. I'm using an external USB HDD and that is on standby until accessed.
So the first use of HDD from GMB is slow because the disk needs to spin up etc. So I guess on a always on HDD I would not have this issue.

Is it worth changing database for gmusicbrowser? I'm running a large collection on an oldish laptop and it works, but is a bit slow at startup and search. Current database is something like mysql or whatever comes with a default Mint installation.
I just wonder if it's likely to gain noticeable speed improvement or will it be a waste of effort.

Thanks. A
