It seems 2GB of RAM definitely doesn't cut it anymore for even a single-user Mastodon instance (with elasticsearch). My system looks much happier after I allocated 4GB to the VM...
With 2GB, the system usually was using 800MB swap after just a day of operation - see munin memory graph below (the bump each night is xfsdump using up cache while traversing the media filesystem for incremental backups).
Also from last weekend, since @goetz had bought one of those: A WiModem232...
Connects to wireless, with an own TCP/IP stack that can be configured with AT commands from the serial port. Can do inbound and outbound telnet (inbound produces a RING on the serial port, like dialin on a modem).
Hrm. My Mastodon instance has run out of memory. Hasn't happened in a long time, but for the past couple of days, there has been a linear growth in memory usage.
redis certainly has had a part in that, but not enough to eat up 2 GB of swap - so something else has to be wrong in addition to that.
Has anything changed in that regard with the 2.6 upgrade? Does anyone else see this?
Whatever software I used to write the backup tapes on my Atari ST back then seems to have used a (relatively) tar-compatible format...
*sigh* Another old service being shut down - was one of the more popular ftp mirror sites in central europe for a long time: http://mirror.switch.ch/
Must have been announced quite some time ago, but I only just learned today.
