Description Of Issue
Over time, the responsiveness of Roon decreases. The slow down presents itself as Overview page takes longer and longer to load. Searches take longer to complete. Music takes longer to start playback (both local files and Tidal streaming), and Roon Remote takes longer to connect to the Core. For example. Searches can go from taking 1-2 seconds to complete to 10-20 seconds. Starting playback goes from 0-1 second, to 10-20 seconds.
The slow down is on all Remote devices including D3 and D1 which are hardwired.
Restarting Roon Server temporally fixes the problem. Within 24 hours, Roon is annoyingly slow again and I restart Roon Server. I do not restart the computer, I just restart Roon Server and I am back zipping through Roon.
I am relatively new to Roon, having it installed for a little less than a month.
