Don’t want to hijack the thread but a close friend and I observe a
similar difference: On the same ~150k tracks library (mixed FLAC/MP3), I
usually get between *8–15 minutes* for an update scan, while his machine
regularly takes much more than *20 hours* for the same.

We both use the same LMS version and have the same settings, the
machines differ as follows:

Ubuntu Studio 14.04, XFCE, Dell Optiplex 7010 (4-core i5-3470), 32 GB
RAM, boot disc: 1TB SSD, music disc: 4TB HGST HDD.

Linux Mint 17.3 (based on Ubuntu 14.04), Cinnamon, Dell Optiplex 9010
(4-core i7-3770), 16 GB RAM, boot+music disc: 4TB WD SSHD.

Could that really "only" be his slower DE and 16 GB less RAM, and/or
running from a SSHD instead of an SSD/HDD combination?
