Why is Infuse taking forever to search?

Is it normal for it to take 3 1/2 minutes to do a search? I just searched for Batman and it took that long before it populated with movies etc. Did this get better or…?

How many items do you have in your library?

I have 4 Plex shares…each about 250 000 items.

Well…that’s a lot of files. Not too surprised but I’m sure some optimizing can be done.

How do you mean? Is there something I can do you mean?

From a coding perspective speeding up search isn’t impossible but usually at the expense of cache size or other things. The only thing you can do is ask infuse to speed it up or reduce your files.

How do I ask Infuse to speed it up?

Well that’s what this forum is for. Infuse staff will see it, but you might not get an immediate fix

We have some improvements for search planned, which will help with super-large libraries in particular.
