Re: Compacting thumbnail database takes a long time

OK, well been trying various things over the holiday including the Sqlite command line tools to see if it would identify anything. Whenever I ran "compact" on either database or both I get very variable results, but all taking an exceedingly long time overnight etc usually ending with a lockup with ...

Re: Compacting thumbnail database takes a long time

Tks for the report Larry56, most intrigued now as to what is happening. beginning to wonder if there is a problem with the .cat.db. Nothing untoward is happening when I use the system itself merely the problems when compacting.

Re: absolutely block Google and other "cloud services"?

You have to open a Google account to access the API, so if you don't have a Goggle account it won't be used!

Re: Compacting thumbnail database takes a long time

Weird, worrying even, I restored back to a backup taken directly after running a compact using the version 2607. Just to check all was OK I ran a Compact on the .cat.db again after restoring.

Re: Compacting thumbnail database takes a long time

Spoke to soon, it seemed to work the first time on both .db's, now it just hangs on .cat.db and eventually totally freezes. Its fine when working on the thumbs.db. No error messages or panels, it appears to create a file in a temp folder that looks going by the size to be a copy or compacted copy of...

Re: Compacting thumbnail database takes a long time

I've never seen them appear during or after before, apparently used with Write Ahead Logic and SHared Memory, so maybe its been turned on in this latest version ??

Re: Compacting thumbnail database takes a long time

Something has obviously changed as there are now two additional .db files created .db-shm and .db-wal the .db-shm file was changing in size during the compacting process.

Re: Compacting thumbnail database takes a long time

Thanks for getting back so quickly Hert, appreciated.
I'll get the info together for my setup, and at some point over the holidays I'll get some basic timings done!

Re: Compacting thumbnail database takes a long time

Would installing the server version with one of the other databases be worth while in producing a speed up ?

Re: Compacting thumbnail database takes a long time

I must admit since updating to the last release 5.3.0.2592 a couple of days ago, compacting the database has slowed to an absolute crawl and display of thumbnails is also badly affected with it taking an age to display the full image in the meantime a base colour is displayed which is change from pr...
