Okay here's what I'm going to do, or at least try!
I will setup another 1 or 2 servers for sidekiq. (sidekiq is the part of Mastodon that handles the jobs, think about all actions in the network.)
Currently we are about 100k jobs behind and I'm afraid one server just won't do..
If anyone has any experience with this could some give me a few tips? I know I'm going to fix it but it could be a lot faster!
@stux An extremely noob question - what exactly are these jobs? Is something being triggered on the server everytime traffic comes in?
@Psyborg There are no noob questions, it's good you ask!
Every action on the platform like a follow, a toot, or a boost for example is a 'job' for sidekiq the software that handles these things. 🙂
@stux Like via an API? I know there are no noob questions and thank you so much for not making fun! I'm a C dev myself and always on the lookout for new things to absorb. Is there a sidekiq manual I can look at and not bug you?
@stux Thanks much! Another question - do you own this instance?
