Hello, have been using Roon Server for quite while.
Previously on a Mac (Mac mini i7 – ca. 2012) and – yikes – on a Nucleus+. Unfortunately I still run into an issue on the new mighty Nucleus+ that I supposed to be coming from the aging Mac :-(.
When I turn on Audio Analysis, the Roon server processes some songs and than crashes. On the Mac side the app simply “unexpectedly quits” which result in a lost connection until I restart the app. On the Nucleus the server (app) restarts by itself and each client connects again after the server is up and running.
This is a closed loop and I can count seconds until the next crash.
Luckily I tracked down the issue to Audio Analysis – if I turn it OFF the server works nicely (with the lack of the Audio Analysis benefits like Dynamic Range).
It does not make any difference how “fast” I set the process – Throttled or any Number of cores result in the same “behaviour”.
I looked the the community threads – obviously I have an issue with some/many songs the server chokes on when analysing. Unfortunately I can’t find out what causes the problem.
Following some threads I took a look at the (many) log files on the Nucleus* – I can see that songs are “dirty”…?!? I can listen to the files named there and Metadata-Tagger can read the songs/files displaying tags just fine.
How can I track down the issue and identify and resolve the cause?
