I was running a ROCK Roon core on Intel NUC i3 (813) with 8Gb of ram, system on 256gb SSD NVME, library on a 2tb SSD inside the NUC. I was Nothing to say; it was fast. But two days ago, I realized it was some “waist” to have a 24/24 home server running for only one application. Moreover, I was not using the 250gb of fast NVME inside.
So I wipe the nuc clear, install the last release of Ubuntu server (20.04 LTS), and followed the installation process for Linux. It was flawless and smooth.
I’ve installed on the side Plex server and Pi-Hole on the nuc, and that’s all. That was my motivation (to get pi-hole running and also to get my plex server running and using the 250gb to store movies).
So globally, I’m happy with the new setup. The only issue is that now the Discover page and Overview page or Roon takes about 15s to load. It was a few seconds before (1/2/3 seconds maybe). I’ve checked the CPU load; it’s not coming from pi-hole, and at the time, plex is not used. Moreover, checking with htop during opening overview page (or discovery), there is no CPU charge at all during 15s of wait, then some charge appears for 1-2 seconds when it finally displays the page at the end.
I should add a few things:
- I have Qobuz integrated into Roon
- My library is about 1030 albums (about 13000tracks) and is only stored on the internal SSD, so quite fast
- My internet connection is excellent (950mbps down, 500mbps up)
- I’ve changed the ulimit -n to 1048576 instead of default 1024 and reboot, no change in speed
Do you have any clue why it’s slower? Is it compatibility issue with 20.04 version, or anything else? I don’t see why it would be that slower, even more than other Roon pages (like albums, genre…) are as fast as before.
Thanks in advance for your help
