Hello all you lovely Kubernauts! 👋

I'll be posting news and announcements relating to the k8s.social Mastodon instance so please do give me a follow if you're a member here.

I'm operated by @Marcus but this account will be mostly post-only and won't be monitored often for messages or notifications.

We are aware of performance issues currently effecting k8s.social and are investigating.

Mastodon seems to be performing as expected but requests are struggling to get through correctly.

Current thinking is an issue with the load balancer in front of the server.

We'll keep you updated as much as we can.

Upgrade now complete! 🎉

This Mastodon instance is now running `v3.5.5`.

We'll be planning the upgrade to `v4` in the coming days and will provide more details when we have them.

📢 Tomorrow we’re planning to upgrade this Mastodon instance to v3.5.4

There should be no downtime but as always if you see anything not working please let @Marcus know. 🤞

Once this upgrade is complete we will start planning for the upgrade to v4 but not sure when that will happen yet.

Release notes: github.com/mastodon/mastodon/r

All sorted now! ✅

Apologies for those that were waiting for the confirmation email. Hopefully they’re all made it through now.

⚠️We seem to be having issues sending emails.

Investigating now!

Apologies to those that have signed up recently and not yet got the confirmation email.

We’re now moved over to the new infrastructure very kindly provided by Civo! 💙

Only thing outstanding is the database but that will come much later. Possibly aligned with upgrading this instance to Mastodon v4 when finally released.

If you notice anything not working correctly please reach out to @Marcus 🙂

Have a wonderful Sunday, y’all!

Tomorrow we’ll be switching k8s.social over to new infrastructure.

This process could take a while to roll out to everyone (yay for DNS propagation) but there shouldn’t be any downtime. 🤞

Please note there there is a chance that streaming updates on the web interface may fail. Refreshing the page should fix this.

🎉 Successfully migrated over to the new media storage!

You may notice a small number of images not loading but these should eventually get replicated over.

Please let @Marcus know if there are any issues.

Apologies for that brief downtime. We clearly weren't as prepared as thought.

More testing will be taken before we attempt the switch.

📣 Later today we'll be switching over the media storage to a new location.

If all goes well there should be no downtime but there may be a small period where some images and other media aren't found while the media is switched over.

If you notice any errors, such as being unable to add images to your posts and similar, please reach out to @Marcus
