How are other Mastodon admins dealing with the system cache?
Even after running media remove, preview_cards remove and remove-orphans, cache is still pretty big:
~/live/public/system/cache$ du -h --max-depth=2
@dcid My instance is just me so it's using just 1 gig in media storage total. How much storage space do you have for your entire instance?
@dcid Oh so I went a bit overkill with 1TB haha. I am quite liking this though, and might actually build out and ship a full server to host a larger instance.
@dcid this is how it looks on my system with daily cache prune after 30 days:
mastodon@mastodon:~/live/public/system/cache$ du -h --max-depth=2
I haven't observed it continuously either, but it doesn't seem to be growing extremely for me. With more users, of course, it will increase accordingly.
I execute the following commands daily:
* tootctl media remove
* tootctl media remove-orphans
* tootctl preview_cards remove --days 90
* tootctl emoji purge
* tootctl accounts cull
