Description of Issue

Starting Export with my Roon Remote Version 1.8 (build 831 stable) (64 Bit) running on windows 10; tried it both exporting albums as well as artists (folling screen shot shows exporting artists); select some artists, start export, some tracks are exported, then export hangs after some exported tracks (between 8 and up to 270), no error message, just stopped exporting and spinning circle, this situation lasts for several hours:

deleting the export job and restarting doesn’t help, cannot export the album / track where the system got stuck anymore; but after closing the ROON remote on my Windows 10 machine and restarting and creating a new export job I can export the album where the previous export job stopped - but this new export job gets stucked also somewhere else after 8 to 270 tracks …

downloaded the logfiles at the moment when the screenshot above was taken, you can find “download_2021-11-13_11-31-38.zip” in Dropbox - Roon - Simplify your life


Hello @noris ,
may be this issue is related to Roon stopping randomly - #105 by noris

What I did therefore:

I forced a backup:

Afterwards started a maintenance of my entire library


Started the Export again

Export stopped after some minutes at track nr 30, keeps spinning:

CPU activity was low for some minutes during export, then went to sleep:

Disk activity stopped also after some minutes:

Memory usage was never above 64%.

Downloaded Logfile “download_2021-11-20_12-48-56.zip” and stored in the DropBox above


Hello @support, PLEASE HELP - thx!

Hey @fschmeis ,

These issues may very well be related to your other thread, please see my thoughts there:

Hello @noris , I installed the Roon server on my notebook, Win 10, i7, 16 GByte RAM; the exports runs like a charm …

Thanks for testing that @fschmeis . That further confirms that there is some issue with the previous Core. If the Win 10 works as expected, I suggest to keep using that one.

Hello @noris , thx for coming back to this issue!

I am not yet 100% convinced that my QNAP has a technical resp. HW defect, in particular as the export just stopps without any error message, there was no problem with the mem test, same with many days of disk i/o tests, no other appliction has problems … nevertheless I will move the core somewhere else as I have struggled now for many years running Roon on my QNAP …

running the core on my Win10 Notebook with appr. 40 thousand tracks is just a test, this notebook is owned by the company I am working for, therefore I had to take a decision with regard to: which NUC, which operating system, where to place the NUC …

Update: Just ordered a NUC10i7FN with 1 TByte SSD and 32 GByte and will install ROCK, will place it downstairs in the network cabinet and hopefully

  • the device will be capable to handly my entire library of appr. 400.000 tracks stored on the QNAP and
  • I will never need any technical assistance again as the NUC and Rock will keep itself up to date … :smiley:
