Done, thanks Hetzner for instant VM scaling
Well, a backup has started so this will wait for tomorrow
Right now I'm deleting all the objects that have already been transferred from the old bucket, in order to reduce the load on the backend databases, so that maybe we can transfer the remaining object to the new bucket at OVH.
Once the bucket is "complete" I will run some major cleanup tasks such as removing orphans, foreign emojis etc
More technical details:
So basically the issue at Scaleway is the metadata database, which goes out of sync for large datasets.
Some objects appears to be broken, and can't be accessed as of rn. Out of 1.8m we're missing about 250k.
I decided to move the instance to the new bucket even though the sync was not finished because it will take some time for the last objects to be transfer and the instance was down for too long. Also the backlog was taking too much memory
To handle the huge backlog of toots of the past weeks, I added power to the server. Now that everything's fine, I'll go back to the previous specs. This will take a few minutes tonight.
Other than that, everything should be working properly.
I started this instance because I wanted to make a cool place for people to meet and communicate. Thank you for your support, 🇧🇷
Well, 500k jobs remaining
It should be OK in about 15 hours.
upgraded the server a bit until the backlog is ok
Wow, it's 2x to 6x more efficient. The backlog size is finally going down!
I've split the queues so that the default queue doesn't use all the threads
Well I've raised it to 100
