Activity on the http://matrix.org homeserver has been up 5x over the last few days, and we started to get dangerously close to the ceiling on the Synapse master process again... so we just fixed it with more workers (as per https://matrix.org/blog/2020/11/03/how-we-fixed-synapses-scalability)!
@matrix Perhaps a stupid question, but is this uptick likely to have a knock-on effect on homeservers that aren't themselves growing in terms of local users?
@petrichor if the homeservers are in rooms which are bigger and busier then yes, it will have some knock-on impact.
@matrix Ok, thanks. I'm the only user of my instance, so is me leaving busy rooms enough to reduce my local load, or will I need to purge them fully from my instance?
@matrix very impressive !
