Description Of Issue
Most recent bootup took 6 minutes and 42 seconds. What could be the problem?
Can you provide some additional details about your Core machine? What kind of CPU does it use? How much RAM does it have? Is the Roon database stored on an SSD?
How many tracks do you have in your Roon library?
Sorry it took so long to get back to you. I had to wait for Roon to boot up.
3.5 GHz Intel Core i5, 24 GB RAM, the database is on the MACs HD which ias a 3TB fusion drive. I have ~210,000 tracks (209k+).
A fusion drive? I’d be prepared to bet that that’s the culprit. Roon really requires an SSD for its database for all but the smallest of libraries, and your library ain’t small. Anything else and you’ll see a performance issue.
With your size of library, the Core i5 might also be an issue. See this post for more details on hardware requirements:
It feels like the answer to most “will it work?” questions is going to be “It’ll work, but it won’t be as good as it could be”, because lets be honest, no-one is going to wonder whether a Mac Pro works flawlessly or not.
I want to expand a little bit more to help you guys understand where the tradeoffs are so you can make good hardware decisions. As we’ve said above, Roon will run on just about anything vaguely recent. How much hardware you need to get an impeccable experience depends on how yo…
As Geoff mentioned above, and as noted in our
suggested specs page, an SSD is strongly recommended, especially for a library as large as yours.
