Re: UMS getting stuck, some hard to spot bug

So, i've been monitoring the UMS thread count for a while, and here is what happens on UMS 9.0.0-b2 https://i.ibb.co/nmgwn59/day.png The server stays "good" for a while, then something happens and it runs out of control in 2 hours. I have some file events around the time when threads started to grow...

Re: UMS getting stuck, some hard to spot bug

I can't remember clearly, but i have a feeling this bug has "always" been present since i became an UMS user at the early 7.x days. It is still present in 9.0.0-b2. At the beginning, it took about a month for UMS to exhaust the thread resources and hang the system, now it takes only a few days; this...

Querying UMS status?

Hi there!

I am using UMS as a server in headless mode.

I made a script to restart it periodically, but i do not want to restrt it while it is being "used". Is there a way to query how many clients are connected to it and/or if it is streaming a content?

Thank you

Re: UMS getting stuck, some hard to spot bug

Yep, it still happens in 8.1.0.

I am now setting up a script to kill and restart it when it approaches the threads limit.

Help writing a renderer

Hi there! I am trying to write the missing Samsung Q7 renderer. About the "H264Level41Limited" option, the manual says: "H.264 FHD is supported up to Level 4.1. (TV does not support FMO / ASO / RS); H.264 UHD is supported up to Level 5.1.". What's the correct setting for the option to behave accordi...

Disabling transcoding by default?

Hi there.

So, it looks like most of the videos sent to my TV are transcoded even when not needed: if i enter the #TRANSCODE# folder and try to play the video "as-is", it just works. Is there a way to disable transcoding by default and leave it available only in the #TRANSCODE# folder?

Re: UMS getting stuck, some hard to spot bug

It happened again. I now have additional info. The system gets unusable because it hits the threads limit (cgroups). The result is being unable to fork (so it is impossible to login too). Luckily, this time i had left a shell open :mrgreen: Long story short, the Java process "java -Xmx768M -Xss2048k...
