Mastodon and sidekiq optimization

My YunoHost server

Hardware: Hetzner Server
YunoHost version: (stable)
I have access to my server : both
Are you in a special context? : no (not yet atleast)


My Mastodon Server has more than enough disc space and RAM, but Mastodon is really slow, because of all the new users in the Fediverse.
Many Mastodon admins have split sidekiq into more than one process and did other optimizations to sidekiq to keep up with the load.

My skills only go as far as to install and use YunoHost and it’s apps, so I found someone else who will help me with this.
Now my questions:

  • Will YunoHost have troubles upgrading Mastodon if we change sidekiq?
  • Would it make sense to create a pull request for ynh-Mastodon to change sidekiq configurations for all ynh Mastodon users?

Thanks. :slight_smile:

Maybe not, but that depends a lot on the specific of what is modified exactly

Sure ! But it also depends if there are drawbacks for users with smaller needs … however, this is something that could be added to the config panel of the app to make it easy to activate the “sidekiq optimization” (if that’s relevant and easy to do this)


That would be cool!
