uwu.social media migration (from Minio to plain FS on a new server) was called off. Aurieh and I are both very tired so we decided it would be best to stop for now and try again some other time when we're not tired and have a better battle plan.
Copy performance from Minio (or directly from Minio's data dir) is extremely slow because stat calls take ages for some reason. We'll look into the performance issues with the FS for next time and explore ways of listing files without using stat (i.e. via Mastodon's DB).
We're sorry for severely underestimating the amount of time it should've taken. I hope we didn't cause too much inconvenience from being offline.
@dean thank you both for the hard work and transparency, esp. when things don't go as planned
