Scan too slow

Hi :D
I was trying madsonic (premium) to compare it over subsonic, and for now I like all the addons it has :) Thanks!
But I have one issue, my music is on a nfs share, and both subsonic and madsonic have access to it, but when scanning (excluding the first time, obviously), subsonic goes at 1000 songs per second, and madsonic at 300 songs per second.
I have near 1.5TB so it takes a loooong time to finish the scan.
There are no errors in the logs, any idea?

Code: Select all
=========================================================================================
 VERSION:      Madsonic 6.3.9560.3e2ad42.20170712.0529
 SERVLET:      Integrated with madsonic, i suppose it's Jetty.
 SERVER:       CPU: i5-3470T | ARCH: X64 | MEMORY: 2GB | HDD: 6TB
 OS:           Debian 9
 SYSTEM:       Server
 INSTALLER:    Deb
 JAVA:         OpenJDK 8
 BROWSER:      Any
 CLIENT:       Madsonic 6.3
 DESCRIPTION:  Slow Scan
 REPRODUCIBLE: Yup
=========================================================================================


Thanks a lot! :D

I though if this can be because madsonic reads extra tags than subsonic (?). It can be?

Scans went from ~100 songs / second to ~300 songs / second, but still below from Subsonic.
Maybe a button for scanning only one media folder at a time it would be useful, so I don't have to wait for a entire scan, o setting a 2 minutes scan per any folder and wait for it.

Thanks!

There is a Fast access mode in the Media Folder Configuration
(Use this option to minimize disk access, for instance if your media files are located on a network disk.
Note: Changes to files will only be visible after your media folders are scanned.)

Also, Scanmode Metadata in the Admin Panel could be responsible for slower/faster scanning of files. See here.

First time scans always take much longer as scans where only difference is checked.

Network Shares mostly will take much longer to scan as Local Drives, also there can be 1000 of reasons, why scanning is slow, i.e. Virusscan, other process which use disc drive at the same time.
I.e. its not a good idea to scedule a scan for SubSonic and Madsonic at the same time.

Some ppl. told me, that NFS is faster than SAMBA, but I made contrariwise experiences on my systems.

It also depends on the (meta)data which is to scan (I have enabled multiTag support, advanced IDTag support and Custom Tags via Settings -> ID3-Tag, so it will take even longer to process all the files, I guess.

I don't exaclty know for sure how Madsonic handles this, but maybe if a user has >3 Media folders configured, they all will scan at the same time and thats not good for disk I/O as well. Sequentiell scanning is better/faster as parallel (well at least, on my old 5400rpm SATA discs).

Its hard to tell and there is no "scan faster" button, unfortunately ;-)

P.S.

Serverlog (from left NavigationBar) is a good place to check how long how many files need to be scanned.
