Man Mastodon is just ridiculously resource intensive
It's almost worth just not running a Mastodon instance over tbh
@sir Mine is just 11 users, but it seems to run okay on a 1vCPU/2GB ram instance (+4GB swap), and that's with the Elastic Search container too. I don't have 1k followers like you though.
The queue occasionally gets backed up and I start getting HAProxy timeouts, but not all that often.
Hitchhiker.social is a Mastodon instance created by Sumit Khanna, a technologist and blogger out of Chicago. This is an experimental instance that's currently invite only.
