The database is big, big costs money.
Any sort of bot is now banned on mstdn.io.

Hello, sorry for the unannounced maintenance, I reindexed the database and I forgot it locked the tables.

I will do another maintenance soon to vacuum the database (it's pretty big...)

Added more queues to process the jobs. The server didn't die and it processed all the jobs. There should be no delay now!

Update: So jobs are blocking the queues. I don't know what's happening.

There was an issue with the sidekiq queues for about 7h.
I restarted the queues and scaled them up.
About 80k jobs are being processed right now, please wait for a bit!

#Mastodon v2.6.2:

github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

This is a backport of fixes and improvements from the master branch to 2.6

I'll update the main and database server in the next hours (OS upgrade)

I suspended a user that was spending its time saying awful things about jews and muslims. He also blocked the @admin account after I warned him, which specifically means that he does not want to comply with the rules of this instances.

Remember:

- Free speech has its limits
- If you don't agree with the rules here, just don't sign up. You have the right to disagree with the admin, but blocking my account means direct suspension.

As usual, updated list: gist.github.com/angristan/2f2f

In other news I'm glad Hetzner is making volumes because it's getting very tight in here :blob_fearful:

Sorry for the poor performances last night. I just realized the DB server had some I/O issues, out of my control, that seem to be resolved.
