    >65K?! I’m not even half through ripping my CD collection, but I’m pretty sure I won’t exceed 45K. Impressive.

    14785 songs in 330 seconds

    On a 2.66 GHz 1 GB Celeron D Win2k3 server with a 80 GB SATA system volume and a 600 GB 3 SATA DRIVE RAID 5 volume (which holds the music library).

    *Yes*, all the songs are legal. I have an enormous cd collection from years of starving as a college student to buy music (something like 12K cd’s in all).

    mt-daapd handles them fine. iTunes barfs a hundred kittens on the xml file (it takes about 2 minutes to load and then searches are mind-numbingly slow).

    If anyone has any tips on performance, I want to know about them. I plan to upgrade to iTunes7 tonight, but I don’t expect any improvements.

    I suppose if I win, I should give out my specs too:
    P4-1.8GHz, 512MB RAM, FedoraCore5, 6x250GB PATA drives in software RAID-5, running svn-1348 version of mt-daapd.

    Since you seem to be using FireFly as a media server anyway and with that many tracks and performance trouble, I propose you might want to give MediaMonkey a try instead of iTunes:

    Oh, almost forgot to stay on topic: 12582 legal tracks.

    I tried MediaMonkey. It burnt to a crisp. iTunes bogs down at about 20-30K tracks, and MediaMonkey did better at about 60K, but nothing seems to work. I’ve used http://www.ampache.org with great success but the interface is sorely lacking. I’ve also tried Jinzora but it implodes with only about 5-10K tracks and after that is completely unusable.

    I’ve tried Google Desktop Search with the MP3 plugin (not very useful). Really there is nothing out there that can handle the number of tracks efficiently. I have to wait for 60GB iPod’s to be the standard and 50K+ tracks become the norm before I’ll see any improvement I guess. The new iTunes 7 made no difference, but at least I am not seeing the bugs others have reported.

    UPDATE:
    Maybe I don’t follow your comment about mediamonkey? Is there a way to use mediamonkey with the Firefly server?

    Sorry? What do you mean?

    What do you mean with “nothing seems to work”? I am using MM since 2 years now and although there are bugs in it like in any other program of comparable complexity, I never had any serious problems with the non-beta versions. And if you encounter a real bug, you just do a debug log and normally the programmers take care of it rather fast.

    Really there is nothing out there that can handle the number of tracks efficiently.

    What kind of “handling” do you expect? Maybe we are just talking about different things.

    UPDATE:

    What I meant is that you can manage your huge library with MM, I don’t know any better and faster program for library management than MM. But MM is no mediaserver. Here is where FireFly comes in. On my XP machine, FF handles my 12500 tracks (11800 Flac, rest MP3) very well. Only on my NSLU there are some problems sometimes.
