I got reports that a couple of instances where their federation stopped working. I suspect others also might have a slower federation because of jobs stuck in their Sidekiq queue.

I have done some debugging and came up with a patch github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/ that I will start installing in a minute.

You should expect around a 15 second downtime during the patch installation.

This patch will strip metadata from audio files. This was the only way I found to solve this issue until a fix is issued.

The patch is installed for every instance hosted by Masto.host

Any issues or questions, please let me know.

Thanks 🐘

@mastohost Thanks for that patch! I was noticing the sidekiq queues stacking up yesterday.

@mawr it should be related. Please let me know if that continues to happen after this.

@mastohost Just confirming that things are looking much better here, post patch. Nice work!! :blobthumbsup:
