You can specify an option that will surpress the DB vacuum that is done during the init. This along with no startup-scan tremendously speeds up the startup time on NAS’ 😉
I believe it was startup_scan = 0 iirc
It’s general/quick_startup=1 to suppress the vacuum.
That is, in the config file add the line “quick_startup=1” in the [general] section. It can’t be added via the web interface, it’s a super secret double-probation config entry.
The other option is the “skip first scan” option you can set in the web config.
