Reply To: 2TB partition limit – Fact or Fiction?

27. Dezember 2016 at 20:35 #25272

Well, I tried an externally powered drive and the problem remains. It’s a 2tb drive, so the 4tb partition on the earlier drive is also not the cause of the problem.

Here’s what top shows when I attempt to scroll through my library by song title (or artist or album) using android app Squeezer. After a few seconds of this, music playback stops until the app and server manage to display the next screenfull of song titles. Notice that PID 457 (squeezeboxserver) is at 100% CPU while the total pi3 cpu usage is only at about 25%. That makes it seem that the SB server is only utilizing a single core of the four, when instead it should probably have its streaming service on a dedicated thread/core to prevent such things as this from causing streaming to stop. (?)
