Windows 10; AMD quad core 3.6; 16GB RAM
NEtgear 10Gb ethernet switches; all wired
W4S Dac2, USB connected to Roonbridge on Win 7 machine with wired ethernet to Core.
Windows system audio (for visualizers)
Issue #1: Roon slows down with ordinary use, including just shuffling Roon Tags, to the point where it will take 10-20 seconds between tracks (and yes, I see that thing where if you skip to the next track within 30 seconds it progresses immediately, but after 30 seconds if you skip to the next track there is the delay); searches and tag focus queries take longer, pages take longer to open, discographies take long to open. All performance degraded.
Only fixed when Roon core is stopped and restarted. Reliably and repeatable.
Issue #2: I use a variety of Windows 10 machines as remotes, to be able to control the audio from various points. Have to clear image cache daily or all I get are black boxes.
This is the same issue that I see others report and there are similar symptoms and temporary remedies. The slowdowns don’t correct themselves after some process is over. Restarting the core software is required. I strongly believe this is a resource leak. When the database has to work on something, there is some hangover, and it never recovers without restarting.
EDIT: To be clear, I am using this thread to track the issue, as perhaps that will be useful for others as well as my own records on how often these actions are needed. It’s not my intent or suggestion to spam the forum with a record of each little problem with Roon, but since this seems to be affecting other users, I thought it would be good to get more specific, and also to just confirm the intervals between these issues.
