Multiple "Plex Media Scanner.exe" in task manager
Hey Everyone, I have had PMS running smoothly for a couple years now with almost no issues, however recently I have been having an issue I cannot figure out. I keep getting multiple instances of "Plex Media Scanner.exe" in my task manager until my server becomes unresponsive. I have looked through the logs but I don't understand them enough to catch a problem. It seems to do this randomly and more so when I add new content. (It seems to get stuck ALOT on TV shows)
This started happening ever since I updated a few months ago. I kept crossing my fingers that an update would address this, but it seems like it might be something else on my side. I don't want to do a complete new install because I have over 50TB of media I don't want to clean up again. Here is a screen shot of what I am talking about. For every "Plex Media Scanner.exe" I have a "conhost.exe" sucking memory as well. Has anyone seen this issue or have any ideas of what I should look into to address it? What logs should I provide or look a look into this. Is there any info I need to omit before posting logs? I'd like ensure I don't give out my token or other private info? Thank you for your time!
