In an attempt to reduce registration spam that has lately been affecting some Mastodon servers on Masto.host I will be applying a custom patch to Mastodon v3.2.1.

This will require a restart of instances hosted on Masto.host and cause ~30 seconds of downtime.

You can read the details here: masto.host/testing-custom-code

Do let me know if you notice any registration problems with this patch and if you were getting regular spam registrations see if there is any reduction in the next days.

I have made some changes to the Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. You can read about these, here: masto.host/new-changes-to-the-

Any issues or questions please let me know.

Just to confirm that the issue is fully fixed and everything has been back to normal for the past 3 hours.

Please let me know if you notice any problem.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

The root cause of the problem is still not solved but for the past 5 minutes it has been working without a problem, slower but coming back.
I will keep monitoring the situation and update it here.

At 6:00 UTC tomorrow (in about 6 hours) there will be an interruption of service to do some maintenance to a server rack.

This interruption should affect around 20% of the Mastodon servers hosted on Masto.host and is estimated that the downtime will be ~15 minutes.

You may follow the progress here: travaux.ovh.net/?do=details&id

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Patch is installed. It all looks good from my end but if you have any issues please let me know.

There was an issue that affected a couple of Mastodon instances hosted on Masto.host where federation stopped working.

I am going to install a patch to try and avoid it happening again. It will require a restart but there shouldn't be more than 20 seconds of downtime.

I believe the issue is the similar to github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/ but caused by the code introduced on v3.5.2 related to the new audio upload.

All instances hosted on Masto.host are now running Mastodon v3.2.0

Any issues please let me know.

Thanks 🐘

PS: ♥️ the new audio player

The traffic filtering is still on but the attack looks to have slowed down and everything should be back to normal.

Please let me know if you are still experiencing any problems.

Thanks and again sorry about any trouble.

For the past 20 minutes someone has been trying to run a DDoS attack on Masto.host host servers.

The traffic is being syphoned to avoid a full disruption of service. Meaning that each connection needs to be filtered before reaching the server. So, it is possible that some users may experiencing some connection delays.

Sorry about that. I will let you know if I have more information.

These changes for processing videos and GIFs are now active for every Mastodon server hosted on Masto.host.

There have been no reported issues and from the backend it all looks good. Also, no peak load monitored on the platform. So, up until now it looks like a good solution.

Again, if you notice any issues with federated GIFs or videos please let me know.

Thanks 🐘

I will be testing some custom changes to reduce platform load caused by processing videos and GIFs.

This will be a gradual rollout and it will be reverted if any problem is detected.

There will be a downtime of less than 30 seconds during code change.

Please let me know if you run into any issues with federated GIFs or videos in the coming days.

You can read more details about this test here: masto.host/custom-processing-o
