Subsonic users running on FreeNAS

Without going into too much detail. Has anyone that is running Subsonic on FreeNAS had any issues when listing sub-folders (left panel) for music paths with a large number of sub-folders (800+)?

My hardware is a AMD Sempron 140 Sargas 2.7GHz (single core) + 2GB RAM

I'm approaching 600 folders on mine. I'm using an embedded VIA 1.5GHz processor and 512MB RAM, and it works great. 800+ shouldn't be an issue with the hardware you've listed. The only time you'd see a delay is when you add a new music folder, or refresh the list. Once it's refreshed, it loads up like normal.

sgx1, do you happen to know what command is being used to mount your disks?

FreeNAS is installed on a standard IDE drive, partition 2 of that drive is a ufs-formatted partition.

My main music folder is on a ufs-formatted SATA drive mounted in FreeNAS.

My second music folder is an NFS mount to another NAS, which can only be done at the FreeNAS terminal using the mount_nfs command:

mount_nfs /mnt/ds_music

I created a PostInit entry to mount the drive at boot, but haven't rebooted FreeNAS since, so I don't know if it mounts that drive before SubSonic starts up.

I hope that answers your question.
