|0018866: Performance: Libraries are scanned frequently, and takes several minutes (or longer) each time for some
|Scanning and comparing changes can take awhile (several hours for some large libraries), and occurs every half hour, and on other occasions. It also occurs every time MMA is launched, causing it to take some time before the user can initiate playback (loading.... appears on the screen for a few seconds, and the scanning process can take much longer).
The process should be optimized, and should be launched only when necessary.
If the process still takes awhile for very large libraries, we can consider making auto-scanning configurable like in MMW. e.g.
[ ] Scan for changes on startup and when MediaStorage updates are detected.
[ ] On startup
[ ] When MediaStorage updates are detected
[ ] Every 30 minutes
Ticket # 3506
|No tags attached.
|Fixed in build
|WiFiSync: Start of sync should stop Media Scanner
|Library Scan settings are overridden by Sync settings
|Performance: background tasks use CPU/Battery to generate unneeded video thumbnails
|Scanning UI layout/terminology tweaks
Can take more time to identify cases to improve.
Currently, it's executed only at startup at least after 30 minutes, and only if some changes are detected, so there is no need to make an option for this.
re 1) media from library folders must be scanned, otherwise, they would not be known to exist and could be downloaded and duplicated. Also, the missing tracks would not have been downloaded if they still existed in the database.
This would also affect playlists.
I have to test it with a huge library and identify what causes an issue.
I believe that the most pain will be huge playlists and maybe folder tree scanning.
Fixed in build 18.104.22.1681
