MM slow

Post by STINO » Sat Jan 26, 2019 2:53 pm

Dear All,
Since I exceeded ~ 100.000 files in the mm archive, the properties operations became slow. Now, with > 150.000 files, the working with properties is not really possible any longer. :oops:
The archive is in drive C:, the music files are on an external 2 TB USB 3 HD. The music is organized in directories
A\abba\record1\titles ... Z\zztop\record1\titles.
There are only a few playlists.
Files in my music 185.000
directories: 15.000
size: 1,06 TB
MM.DB: 382.666 KB (fresh reorganized)

Could please advise whats to do?
All other functions like searching ... are working fine.

Many thanks in advance and
best regards
Stefan

Are you working through My Computer or a Library node (like Music) in the Media Tree? Are you saying you've recently run complete optimization (File > Maintain Library)?

dear lowlander,

i am using the directory structure offered in mm. e.g.

music\location\hd\musik\a\abba\waterloo\watchout.mp3
...
music\location\hd\musik\z\zztop\mescalero\whatwouldyoudo.flac

the optimization is done frequently.
i deleted ca. 15.000 titles during the last months. the database has now 386 mb for 156.000 titles. the behavior is unchanged.
i am using mm since ca 15 years, actual the gold version 4.1.24.1883.


to open the properties of one title (or group of titles), it takes 15 seconds before the mask is filled with all information.
after a change, the speed of the updates of the titles is ok again.

but to wait 15 seconds before the mask is populated is too long.

do you have an idea?

thanks best regards
stefan

What do you mean with mask? Do you mean it's that slow to load the values in the Properties window when you open a file's properties in the Music Collection?

hello dear lowlander,

mask is the property mask.
right click on a title
click on the last enty in the list (properties or shift+enter)
0 seconds mask opens
6 seconds album is displayed
8 seconds interpret is displayed
9 seconds genre is displayed
...
15 seconds title is displayed (sometimes it takes only 13 seconds :D )

when i close the file properties mask and reopen it for the same song, it takes the same long time.
but when i stay in the mask and browse to the next song, it works fast

do you have an idea?

thanks a lot - stefan

That's odd behavior for the Music node. You may want to capture this in a debug log (step 4b) and attach the log to a Support Ticket: https://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewt ... p?f=1&t=69
