Reached limit of watched albums
On my synology nas I reach the watch limit at around 3149 albums with activity log of :- Reached limit of inotify watches permissible on this system. Please review http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/13751/kernel-inotify-watch-limit-reached for remedies
So ideally require Bliss to work out the maximum watch limits & then simple warning message when clicking on the watch album radio button that if you have xyz albums do not watch for changes. OR alternatively a simple inbuilt button for any system including a NAS tweak that allows more albums to be watched than current limits.
Appreciate this is not always a bliss error but a java/unix error perhaps.
bliss uses something called inotify to be informed of file changes (not made by bliss).
There's a limit to how many files you can listen to. On Synology the limit is set quite low (if I recall correctly) and so these error messages are triggered.
It means bliss won't listen to file notifications from some files, but should still work otherwise.
Note it may also impact other software; the limit is global.

Hi, i got the same error on my synology 216. What does this mean, and what should i do?
Thanks for posting this. I definitely think the repeated messages are a problem!
