Extensive file import...time frame?

Postby kookykrazee » Wed Jan 10, 2018 7:14 am

Hi all, it has been quite a while since I posted as MM has worked great for me. Intrigued by 5.x things coming down the pipeline, even if it crashed trying to convert/import my current out of date DB.

The question I have, with my current 4.x MM build is how long SHOULD it possibly take to import all my files. As some remember, I have an extensive collection and I had MM4 going for about 36 hours and it was only about 1/4 of the way through my list.

Specs for system are as follows:
i7 7700k
32GB RAM
W10 Pro (all updates installed)
500,000+ files to import

I get that the scan/import will take a while, but I do not recall it taking this long when I had even 3/4 of what I have now. Would I be better off deleting the previous files that are in the DB and starting over or something else? One other idea I had was to add less folders to be added/scanned, but otherwise, I am stumped.

Thanks for a great product!

On a separate note, is there an option for file monitor in 5.x alphas?

If you enable things like scan for duplicates, auto-analyze unanalyzed files and video thumbnail creation it can slow down the scan a lot.

Where is the auto-analyze unanalyzed files option? I do have the scan for duplicate options enabled.

Is this still an issue with the latest MM5 alpha?
If yes, would you mind you to zip your database (MM.DB file) and share a link to the file with us for analyzing?
You can upload the zipped DB to a free file hosting server (Box, DropBox, RapidShare, FileDropper,...) and share the link.

I've just tried and imported 5.000 tracks in 7 minutes, so 500.000 tracks should (teoretical) take 700 minutes, but practically it is getting slower with amount of the data already in the database. Maybe you could catch in debug log importing of the last 3/4 of your songs to see what we could optimize to get it faster for you?

Yes, it is directly in the Add/Rescan dialog, see the Schedule column:

I tried adding in only 1 drive of files, that wasn't much faster, so I ultimately, close out MM4 and then restarted yesterday. Going on ~36 hours about 2/3 of the way adding files, so my guess is this time tomorrow, hopefully, it finishes...lol
