Is anyone starting to get a handle on how Mastodon / OSocial hosting requirements scale with use and time?
Traffic / bandwidth, storage, CPU, etc., with some sort of sense of by users, etc., would be interesting.
What's the users * days of a 1 TB storage capacity going to run? Any thoughts on addressing this as individual nodes start accumulating content?
Should content age out? That solves ... several problems.
