might be breaking mastodon here. It continues to consume so much space, and it looks like the bulk of the storage is in the public/system/cache directory. I'm pruning files older than 30 days so hopefully all is well.. If not I may have to re-evaluate my continued use of mastodon here. Pleroma hasn't started to run away with storage like this so far. 🤷
@mayor well this was just storage which is a resource but not one I really consider a performance metric in the same way as say cpu or memory. I don't have enough users on either platform to really tax the system, but ruby is a bit of a hungry beast in my experience so I imagine pleroma can outperform when that matters.
@mayor the pruning seems to have been successful. From 180GB down to about 40GB. So long as nothing broke (removing cache should be safe) I'm happy. It's weird because the cli tools didn't seem to see the space being used.
