To put into perspective what is happening, here is 6 month of history of the processing required to run mastodon.social:
@gargron Do you still have data going back to last year's spike? Would like to compare the, uh, relative spikyness?
@gargron on a related note: Has there been new news coverage of Mastodon or what's the deal with this recent influx? Did people actually *remember* Mastodon this time? :O
@Gargron Eugen it's me jackdaw ruiz from the Toot Gazette.
are you willing to give your personal impression of the influx so far, or does commenting on the tone & tenor of the user base fall outside the public face you'd like to maintain on your account?
gron, jimmy toots here, great job on the graph. Love the line part when it goes boink. Keep it up buddy.
@Gargron I'm sorry, from now on I will only toot good toots to save precious resources
PSYCHE, I'M TOTALLY STILL GOING TO TOOT ABSOLUTE GARBAGE
@Gargron is mastodon.social running on some cloud statement like AWS? Are you ok sharing what kind of raw costs that it requires for this kind of load?
@Gargron noticing the bump in failed, but tiny in comparison to successfully processed: y'all are doing great. ty
@Gargron also, i recognize Sidekiq when i see it ;) thinkin about joining the project as an open source contributor (strong Ruby background, some JS too)
