Slow Update Library Since 19.1 Upgrade

Hi, since upgrading to Kodi v19.1, updating my library is taking well over an hour, and most recently was around two hours. Here is the most recent log:

Based on some other posts I am thinking this may be related to using SMB to point to my unraid server, but any help in confirming this would be appreciated. If this is the case, should I use switch to IP address?

Otherwise, what is this error:
osmc mediacenter[2374]: sh: 1: nmblookup: not found

Further info:

  • I am only scraping local info. I use ember media manager to get all info before scraping
  • In total, there are about 6,000 movies and tv episodes and I am probably adding no more than 10 items per scan
  • Prior to upgrading to 19.1, scan took about five to ten minutes. This is much longer than my HTPC, but manageable.
  • This past scan was using the OSMC skin. Prior to upgrading, I was using Aeon MQ
  • Probably a separate issue, but since upgrading, my system is a lot less stable. I tend to fast forward through lots of movies, and this has resulted in multiple crashes that lead to a green screen which require a reboot

Thanks for any assistance.

You can install nmblookup while I would wonder if it solves performance issue (but would be interested to see how it goes for you).

sudo apt-get install samba-common-bin
