@Thib happened to me to a few years ago, I guess we're pushing some limits? :awesome:

@renatolond but we shouldn't be i guess? postgres is supposed to handle much more than that? (maybe not with stock config i guess)

@Thib there's that, also with the number of instances, maybe mastodon workload hits an specific undetected issue 🤷
