As the reddit mods gets ready for the June 12-14 black-out, there some anticipation that an influx in user base will shift over to many of the lemmy instances as user seek out a home to post their internet memes and discuss their interests.
In anticipation of this increased volume I will be growing our current instance from
- 16 CPU
- 8 GB ram
- 24 CPU
- 64 GB ram
This server is currently equipped with SSDs that are configured in a raid 10 array (NVMEs will come in the next gen that get deployed)
Earlier today I also configured some monitoring that I’ll be watching closely in order to have a better understanding on how the lemmy platform does under stress (for science!)
I’ll be sharing graphs and some other insights in this thread for everyone that is interested. Feel free to ask anything you might be interested in knowing more of!
EDIT: I’ll be posting and updating the graphs in this main post periodically! Last updated: 6:21AM ET June 12th
