have tried to find an answer to this in the forum - apologies if my question has already been answered.
I’ve been a very happy Roon user for a long while now, and run the core on a MacMini. When I first installed it, the Mini was also serving my main listening room (hooked directly to the DAC). That has long since changed and the Mini now sits with all the networking equipment in another room, with various RPis as endpoints in the house.
Recently I have started to see slowdowns on delivery of music. Talking about a delay from pressing play to the track starting. it happens both with tracks stored in FLAC on my separate server and with Qobuz tracks. Same with searches sometimes. There is a thread on this - and the suggested reboot of the core does take care of it for a while. The Mini has the max (for it) of 8GB RAM. I don’t need the full Roon app on the Mini anymore (it can be headless), so 2 questions:
1/ would running Roon Server as opposed to “full Roon” make a significant improvement to responsiveness (ie lower RAM / CPU usage), and - more importantly,
2/ if I did move to Roon Server, how can I do that without losing all the metadata etc which I have lovingly input over the years?
Thanks very much. I suspect there’s a simple answer to this!
