Trying to slim down a bit

Since it's not gonna be gone as soon as I expected, better trying to squeeze it uwu

After deleting many remote accounts / instances that aren't alive anymore, time to squeeze objects a bit

Removing 2.5 million media (remote media, which would be redownloaded if necessary).
There are about 8 million media at the moment, for a total of 1.7TB 😓

Suspecting most of the 5.5millions remaining to be mostly thumbnails and link-preview, that would be the next pass.

After that, I will scan the whole bucket for orphaned medias, that aren't referenced anymore in the database due to some migrations or errors :3

I do plan sending an email to say that people that haven't log-in in the past 6(/8/12?) months will see their accounts deleteds, and then remove the ones they followed, etc, leading to reduce even more the space used by niu (most of database/media is filled by dead accounts that are still subscribed to other active remote ones, leeching them all the day even when nobody consume it ;_;)

Ok I think I can have a treat I'm doing a good job

Only 1 500 000 objects remaining on 8 000 000 2 days ago.

It's remote stuff, not locale niu user files

Right now I'm deleting tens of orphaned files (on the bucket, but anywhere to be found on the database), so It might get even lighter ❤️

@Miaourt what kind of api call fee did you rack up going through all of this?

@dmh Wasabi and Scaleway have zero fees on this.

Can't tell for AWS's S3

@Miaourt ah, noticed the saga on federated yesterday and thought it was all S3 :3

@dmh well, it's using the same S3 api, but not on Amazon's servers

@Miaourt I moved here like a month or two before all of this closing went down. I ended up liking pleroma a lot so i stayed here

@Jessica all this closing ? ya meant since November - 1/2 months ?

@Miaourt I memory is crap i don't know exact timings lol
@Miaourt all i remember is that i moved here around the time you did all this

@Jessica I didn't mostly nothing since early past summer soooo xD
