Windows 10 on H8750 laptop with 16GB of RAM
Description Of Issue
A while ago behaviour was very much similar, click on a song, it takes 30 seconds to play.
Back then, it was Windows 10 crippling my Roon Server laptop because it wanted to install updates.
But today there are no updates. I am guessing this is related to COVID-19 and the fact that the Internet is overloaded.
But the thing that bothers me is this:
I click on a song which is not my LAN, and it still takes forever to start playing. I mean the song is right there on the Gigabit LAN.
Listening to music is just not fun anymore, and this is just when I got a pair of Focal Sopra 2’s and a kickass tube amp!
So i want to ask this question: I feel like maybe I am the reaching the capacity of Roon, with 33,000 albums and 350,000 songs in my library. What is the limit of Roon on Windows 10, please?
I chose Windows 10 because there were some conversations at some point that revealed that Windows 10 has better capacity than Roon Core/Cube/Box or whatever that product is.
Also, I notice now that my Roon Server Windows 10 is using 75% of the 16GB memory. Is memory the limitation?
Finally, I re-scanned a HD with 250,000 songs on it on the weekend and it took like 2 days to do it. Now this part I can believe is the Internet and or Roonlabs metadata servers being overloaded.
