Trying to slim down #niu 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 #niu 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 ;_;)
Welcome to your niu world ! We are a cute and loving international community Ｏ(≧▽≦)Ｏ !
