Description Of Issue
Hello Roon support,
After adding one specific album from Tidal, the roon server app starts to take all CPU and never stops. It’s no longer accessible and just cycles between ‘Initializing’, ‘Ready’ and ‘Failed to connect’ states in the clients. Clients are able to connect for about 3 seconds, then again are all disconnected.
Tried to delete the full install, and reinstall from scratch with a restore.
This worked ok until I tried to add this specific album again.
I just tried adding this particular TIDAL album on my end and have not experienced any issues, so I think there is a little more going on here than just this album being added. If you were to try adding this album with a fresh database, before doing the restore, do you see the same behavior occur?
Just did a test and you are right. On blank library I have no issue adding this album.
So it must be something with my existing library and this album.
Let me know how would you like to proceed to find the root cause of this issue.
Moving forward, I’d like to enable some diagnostics on your account so we can take a closer look. First I was hoping you could reproduce this issue and make a note of the time you experience the crash. Respond here with that timestamp and we enable diagnostics and take a closer look.
Just did a new test adding the album with my full library loaded.
Time was 19:37 CEST 10/06.
Right after the album wa added, playback has stopped and the clients are no longer able to connect. To be precise they connect, but get disconnected after like 2-3 seconds. This is then repeating all the time. Server app is running at 100%cpu all the time.
Plese let me know when I can kill it, I would like to avoid some damage to my NAS.
Apologies for the delay here — Diagnostics have been enabled and the next time you start up RoonServer on this machine the diagnostics will be uploaded to our servers. When you’re able to, can you start things up and let it run for a ~15 minutes so the diagnostics report can come through?
