General / How to exclude images from scanning?
« on: April 22, 2014, 14:32:11 »
I don't want to scan images in my audio folders, because every single album and song has an image for the cover (in three different sizes).

Can I turn off image scanning when I just want audio? It slows down the whole process

When running the benchmark, it always says 1 cpu core. I've got a 6 core CPU, so can Similarity use all 6 cores?

I have a Nvidia GeForce 660, and when I am benchmarking the different work group sizes for the GPU, I get inconsistent results. I select 64 and get 74ms, then I select 128 and get 94ms, but when I select 64 again I get 90+ms. It changes when I go back and forth between the workgroup sizes.

What is better- workgroup size of 64 at 74ms, or a workgroup size of 256 at 150ms? Does that mean it's processing 3x more data and only 2x slower? (The CPU always shows 600ms)

I think it would be more accurate if there was a speed indicator during the analysis (like the number of files processed per second). That would be a better benchmark, since I can try different settings and run the analysis to compare speeds.
