Hrm. Woke up to almost ~20k enqueued sidekiq processes this morning because even though I made a specific process with 500 threads to handle the "default" queue, it seems to only run about 50 threads for it at a time. The "push" and "pull" queues don't have this problem, and use all 200 threads completely when needed.
Does anyone know why this is? #mastoadmin
I'll give it one more day, and when things are fixed for sure, I'll update our server's documentation to include all the fixes I did to scale up with the influx of new users and instances to the fediverse. I know many other masto admins are experiencing similar issues and have all solved these in slightly different ways—hopefully my solution can help folks know what to do!
