    So if you don’t mind sharing, what happened?

      yeah in addition to that I’ll do a full writeup, but had several problems

      1. lemmy-ansible had pict-rs set to 0.4.0, which is quite an old version, meaning migration couldn’t occur concurrently (it was copying files to object storage sequentially)
      2. upon stopping the migration at one point and attempting to restart (on a newer pict-rs version) the server had completely filled up, so the migration could no longer continue on either version
      3. therefore I had to mount more block storage, copy the entire drive over to the block storage, in order to perform the migration.

      there were lots more issues, but copying hundreds of gigs many times over is a cause to lot of the downtime.

      Site ran out of storage due to pict-rs storage growth (280GB) (pict-rs is used for images on lemmy) so was being migrated over to object storage today. Theres some posts about it over on the mastodon account https://mastodon.social/@programming_dev

        So that’s 280 GB in roughly 5 months? At what rate is it growing now?
