Analysis skips while top song of the list freezes (Beatunes 5.0, Mac OS X, replaygain analysis)

I seem to be having an issue with the analysis.

After some time, the song in the top of the analyses list doubles up, and after that ... analyses skips all the songs, like it's scrolling down quickly through the rest of the list (but no action is taken).

No hangups or crashes, just something that's kind of a bother really, now I don't have a way to check what somngs have been analysed (was using the replaygain feature in this analyses)

    Hey Bart,

    it looks to me like you are running beaTunes with 2 analysis threads (setting in the analysis preferences). These two parallel workers behave independently. I.e. while one may be working on something that takes longer, the other may quickly breeze through a ton of tasks.

    I suspect this is what happened here. Your logs show that one worker was busy with a single task, while the other happened to compute stuff that was already computed before (perhaps as part of a album replay gain calculation). So it quickly worked through many songs, because there was nothing for it to compute. It was able to use cached results.

    The question is, are you actually missing any results, beaTunes should have computed?

    If so, please let me know what song file is missing it, so that I can check in the logs.

    Thank you,

    -hendrik

    From how I see things, it just skipped everything in between.

    Is there a way to verify what files might have skipped the analysis? Or to
    determine if every song has been analysed?

    After the occurrence of this problem, I usually pause analysis, delete the
    1st song that I see as double, and then resume analyses. Everything goes
    well for a while then, until I encounter the next similar issue.

    Usually analysis calculates something. Just check, if that value was calculated.

    Analysis was supposed to have finished a few minutes ago, but it seems like
    it automatically resumed the songs that were skipped earlier (18000 songs to
    go)

    Well, that's really odd. I have no explanation for that behavior.

    All is well. I encountered the same issue over and over, and after deleting
    the song in question from the list, the analysis list renewed itself several
    times untill everything got analyzed.
    So it's not that big of an issue really ;)
    Thanks for the support.
