My Plex server is behaving slow
Over time, and most often after big scans, the plex database can become fragmented which will result in inconsistent performance. It is important that each user maintain their plex install if they have Plex installed on their appbox, such that it performs quickly and does not slow down.

A few signs of a slow plex install can be

  • Loading the dashboard results in "An unexpected error occured loading the dashboard
  • Loading a library results in "An unexpected error occured loading this library
  • Some posters on movies or TV shows are now showing a trash icon
  • Loading a library takes a long time

These issues can be resolved by running plex maintenance tasks, such as empty trash, clean bundles and optimizing the database.
In order to run these tasks, refer to this screenshot - Run them in the same order as presented on the arrows
