Mastodon server tuning 

@flaki asked me for this, so here's a short guide on scaling Mastodon *down*: https://gist.github.com/nolanlawson/fc027de03a7cc0b674dcdc655eb5f2cb

Note that I'm not a Ruby/Sidekiq expert and probably don't know what I'm talking about. But these tips worked for me.

Mastodon server tuning 

@nolan You know what, I like the ending paragraph. Mastodon is not essential software. It's OK for it to be unreachable sometimes. If someone gets angry at not being able to always and immediately access their instance, maybe they should take a deep breath. There is so much more to life than social media.
I almost even feel like this is a hot take and I'm a little bit worried about posting it. But I still feel it's true.
Thanks for the guide!

Mastodon server tuning 

@darius @nolan I often see people telling me to use some dynamically scaling cloud infrastructure for personal projects because "you need to be able to handle the load spikes".
But I think it can be quite easy to handle those spikes. Simply waiting until they go away is a valid option, too.
