Title: Dianemo S: Strange Behaviour with ID3 files
Post by: murcel on September 10, 2012, 10:22:07 pm
i suddenly realized that in mainly all media directories, where an id3 file exists, a lot of other files with the same name exists, but with a appendix.

e.g.

ld.id3
ld.id3.0oZE5q
ld.id3.1o9VVh
ld.id3.2eYcuf
...

sametimes there are some hunfreds of them....

i believe that is not a normale case? is it?

damn, you found the secret change that causes HDD usage to go straight through the roof, and make you buy more HDDs. Good bye, manufacturer contract with Dianemo.

scnr.

btw. cam is still not working, in case you want to email me. (I lost your address).

I've got the same problem.  This is eventually going to become a big problem.

That screen shot doesn't include the actual media files!!

I once used the autotag feature of the web-admin and had something similar happen.  It went tag happy and would apply tags for all media of similar names regardless of type.  My attributes for a single cd audio track had 10-15 attributes for movies.  I didn't look at the id3 files after doing this but imagine they would have been pretty loaded.

This happens continuously on my NAS as well, with LinuxMCE, not Dianemo.  I never chased it down completely.  It looked to me like something with UpdateMedia and tmp files while writing id3s.  Hundreds of these files build up on my NAS.

This appears to happen on some systems, LinuxMCE or Dianemo, and not on others. we don't have a handle on why that is yet though.

Andrew,
do you have any idea on how i can find out, which service or program starts creating those files?
is there something as a monitoring tool?

in the net i found s.th. like inotify, but i don't know if it is the right thing to do.

Very strange
