My first post, so apologies if I don’t provide the correct sort of information.
I just built a new Roon server (i5 NUC) yesterday, and began my long awaited Roon experience (2500 albums). Unfortunately, after a few hours the switch the server and NAS are plugged into became saturated and everything unreachable (no ICMP, no SSH). Some specifics:
Roon Server: i5 Intel NUC running Ubuntu 16.04 LTS fully patched
NAS: Synology 415 running latest OS
Both wired into an old gig Cisco unmanaged 8-port switch
Wireless router: Apple Time Capsule I believe
25-30 total nodes on the LAN, with no prior networking issues that I am aware of. Wired ping intervals usually under 1ms, wireless varies in the single digits, typically.
Endpoints: Pi w/ HiFiBerry, one wired through another identical switch, and one wifi, also 7 node Sonos deployment
I had originally set the audio analysis to “fast” (2 core), and then this morning after re-booting everything changed to “throttle” in case that was the issue. Things died by noon anyway.
My questions for @support:
- Can you point me to what in the logs I should look for to determine what the errors might be on the Roon Server?
- Is there a list of switches that are recommended? Or known not to work?
- My Sonos network is not using my wireless network directly but obviously connected through a Boost. Are there any known incompatibilities with Sonos devices? I have 3 Connect, 1 Boost, Play 3, Play 5, and 2 Play 1, and a Playbar.
Thank you for any pointers or guidance. I’ll have some questions later about metadata and best practices (2/3 classical collection, from 10th C to 21st C).
