Wishlist / Easy Cache path setup
« on: July 19, 2021, 07:44:29 »

It has been several versions since an easy option to change the cache was requested:

Please add at the GUI a direct option for setting the appdata folder and the cache location

Please, implement an easier way to define the cache path, should be placed at
Options > General > Caches

please implement this cache changing location at the program standard setup, would be easier that having to do all those manual steps

version 2.2.0 b2204 is out and still no easy way to setup the cache, would be great to have it implemented

Hi. Version 2.1.0 build 2100 is out, but this option is missing  :(

Thanks for the explanation!

Will look forward for the next update and also for the next algorithm implementation.

Much appreciated

Thanks for the reply. I really appreciate that.

But isn't the cache supposed to minimize the time for a second scan? (That is exactly as the first scan)

As mentioned before, I did some test doing the same exact comparison, the first time the cache increased because it added new files, but the second time it took the same time as when the cache was created.

Any feedback comment from the developers?

That is the point, I don't know why the CPU usage is high but Similarity is taking ages to do its job.

My 2 EHDD are USB 3.0, but what concerns me is that it appears that the cache is useless (at least for a very high volume of files).

I can't believe that I performed a full scan, added several new files to the cache, and by running the same exact scan (wth no new added files) takes the same amount of time like the initial scan.

I have a huge amount of mp3 files (300,000+) and usually use the following config for checking duplicates (collection vs new files):
Audio comparison method: precise 95%
Duration check: enable 95%
Skip video files

My collection is stored accros several drives: my laptop drive and 2 EHDD (USB 3.0)
The Similatity Cache shows a total of 393,693 files

And every time I want to search for duplicates have to deal with the following:
1) when I open the program, it takes between 1 and 3 minutes to load and the GUI to appear
2) then when I start the comparison, a couple of types i have compared all my files (I've not created groups) and it takes 4 to 5 full days to complete. First time I launched this comparison, I though that it took longer since the cache was build, but then launched again the same exact comparison and it took the same 4 to 5 days, isn't it supposed to take much less? I have not added nor deleted any file, just launched again the same comparison to check the difference between having the cache to build and having the cache already created

Are there any plans to further optimize similarity? to really take advantage of the cache and reduce dramatically the time? and also to process a huge collection more efficiently?

Just to follow up this.

Any plan to implement a direct configuration option to change the cache location? instead of having to edit the config.ini?


Bugs / decoder.exe stays after closing similarity
« on: December 23, 2014, 07:29:19 »

When I use Similarity, I normally process between 10,000 to 15,000 mp3 files, obviously the whole processing takes about 12 to 18 hours.

Everything is fine except that sometimes when I shut down Similarity, either because it has finished or because I need to do something else, sometimes 1 or 2 decoder.exe processes stay there, they appear on task manager.

I have even waited several minutes (thinking that Similarity left a process that is still running) but the decoder.exe processes stay there and have to kill them manually.

Is this a bug?

Are there plans to put this cache option right inside the program options? Instead of having to manually change it at the ini file?

General / Re: Change cache location?
« on: December 17, 2014, 04:15:41 »

The ini file to add the cache path is:
C:\Users\<currentUser>\AppData\Roaming\Similarity\config.ini  ?

Is there a way to make that config.ini file to reside on the installation path? instead of the user path?
