I read the online help subject on memory management. Are there options (perhaps beside those) you recommend for processing a very large collection?
I'm planning on using Jaikoz on a collection of around 40 000 files (around 130GB) soon. I have 1GB of RAM and another 1GB as swap. I have both Windows and Linux installed. Do you think it'll run faster on one than the other?
The key thing is to be sensible and load and process the files in batches, I would recommend no more 5000 at a time.
Everything is loaded into memory so eventually as you add more files, things will start to slow down. There is no point loading too many files as it becomes unmanageable, remember Jaikoz is intended to correct your tags before using them in a playersuch as Itunes so once you've corrected your tags theres no need to load them again.
