I got reports that a couple of instances where their federation stopped working. I suspect others also might have a slower federation because of jobs stuck in their Sidekiq queue.
I have done some debugging and came up with a patch https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/pull/12171 that I will start installing in a minute.
You should expect around a 15 second downtime during the patch installation.
This patch will strip metadata from audio files. This was the only way I found to solve this issue until a fix is issued.
The patch is installed for every instance hosted by Masto.host
Any issues or questions, please let me know.
@mastohost Thanks for that patch! I was noticing the sidekiq queues stacking up yesterday.
@mawr Great :) Thanks
