Slow /photo/preview performance


!Friendica Admins

Hi all,

Because of the ongoing performance issues, I moved my whole Friendica database of opensocial.at and friendica.me to a dedicated root-server just for mariadb with 128GB RAM.

At first, it seemed like it helped and opensocial.at is faster than before (the performance of friendica.me is still a mess, but I will analyze it later), but the /photo/preview route is now going crazy:

It seems like the RAM I/O issue I had (which is now gone) is now replaced by an Network throughput issue - but at least the network I/O seems fine:

Do you have any idea what I can do now?

One thing would be to add a "StorageClass" for the Photo to load them (directly) from a filedirectory/block storage instead of the database.

@Philipp Holzer Have you checked your /tmp folder? Here on my server it ran full with magick-XXXXX files.

Thanks for the hint
But there are just two zero-byte magick files at /tmp :)

CI currenrly not usable


!Friendica Developers

Hi, I recently tried to increase the woodpecker / ci performance. Unfortunately it dropped the repositories after migrating from sqlite to MySQL as backend. @Tobias re-added it again (thanks :-) ) but now some settings are still missing.

So currently, the CI isn't working :-( I'll be back home at Sunday evening, but I think I will fix it not before Monday/Tuesday..

So if you need to merge new PRs, keep in mind that the files under files.friendi.ca aren't updating ...

Sorry and I'll give an update when it's working again..

Geplante Downtime / Server Migration


!Opensocial.at
-- English below

Liebe opensocial.at BenutzerInnen,

Ich starte nun eine Migration von opensocial.at auf eine stärkere server-hardware. Dadurch entstehen temporäre Downtimes in den kommenden Stunden.

Ich möchte mich für die Unannehmlichkeiten entschuldigen, aber ich denke, dass dadurch die gesamte Performance von opensocial.at wieder besser werden sollte :).

Lg,
Philipp

Dear opensocial.at user,

I'm planning to migrate my server infrastructure onto a more powerful environment.
The goal is to increase the performance, as, I think, you all currently experience a downgrading performance.

I hope it will help :)

It will take some hours, where opensocial.at will be temporary unavailable from time to time.

Regards,
Philipp

Leider hat die Migration nicht geklappt und ich musste wieder zurückrollen.
--> Ich probiere es im August noch einmal

Unfortunately, the migration didn't work so I had to rollback.
--> I will retry again in august

Slow photo requests / inbox requests


Hi !Friendica Admins ,

I'm currently tracing down performance issues, I' currently suffering from on my nodes opensocial.at and friendica.me .

It seems like the main performance problems are

  • delivering photos
  • [code]/inbox/code] requests


You can see some peeks and some long runners here:

The long runners (10sec) are the /inbox requests, the peaks are delivering photos after opening conversations, network pane, ...

Do you have any hints how I could improve these two types of requests?

The database is currently using ~50GB RAM, I set them as high as possible.

Hi, after moving all contact images to avatar/, there are still a lot of long running requests, see the image above. Do you have any idea? The overall CPU/RAM is on a normal state.

BaseURL components (hostname, SSL policy, urlpath)


!Friendica Developers

I'm currently reducing the whole BaseUrl.php code massively.
Do we really need the ssl_policy, urlpath and hostname separate from the system.url?

I will use for the BaseUrl.php, based on the system.url a "real" UriInterface as $this->url, so we don't need saving the scheme, urlpath and hostname separately anymore. They are just useful for the install process but must not be changed afterwards.

The only thing, which I'm unsure is the ssl_policy, because if someone changes it afterwards in the admin site, all URL in all contacts and photos will get updated. But the question is => is this even allowed? I think this could brick the access over federation because the base-url of each entry isn't right anymore. And it isn't supported when the policy is changed by console.

So I would drop it as well and merge all config entries into the system.url.

Additionally, I will replace the Exception with a "CRITICAL" log entry to avoid a WSOD.

@Tobias I'm not sure what wouldn't work with a self-signed certificate. Unless we are checking the CA for self-requests, but I'm not sure the legacy SSL Policy configuration value is about that.

opensocial.at database data seems corrupt


!Friendica Support

It seems like I do have a problem with my opensocial.at database :-( .

The database ran full about a year ago (what a shame, I know :( ...) and I had to recover some of the data (otherwise I had to import a backup about ~12hours ago, I tried to avoid to loose posts for this period of time for my users ...). So I stopped it, started it with innodb_force_recovery=3, repaired it and checked it with mysqlcheck.

Two days ago, I updated the mariadb from 1.10.3 to 1.10.10 and now the problems occur again.

I stopped the MariaDB 1.10.3 container, updated it to 1.10.10 and started it again .. And MariaDB started a "crash recovery". I really don't know why... The crash recovery wasn't successfully (I tried it ~4 times), so I had to add innodb_force_recovery=3 again.

Now the database went up, but everytime I stopped it and started it again, the crash recovery appears again.

So after the instance was up and running, I dumped the whole database with mysqldump into one single *.sql , started a brand new MariaDB 1.10.10 and imported the dump again.

So far so good ..

But... unfortunately, after a restart, the crash recovery appears again. So I'm totally lost, what's now happening..

I noticed during the import that one batch of rows took about 2 hours to complete with the result query affected 0 rows.

here's my customized.cnf, which I'm using (it's a Hetzner root server with 64 GB RAM and 12 CPUs):

[mysqld]
query_cache_size = 0
query_cache_type = 0
performance_schema = ON
join_buffer_size = 140M
innodb_buffer_pool_size = 12G
innodb_log_buffer_size = 31M
innodb_log_file_size = 3G
table_open_cache = 1000
max_connections = 400
wait_timeout = 200
interactive_timeout = 4000

log-bin = mysqld-bin
transaction-isolation = READ-COMMITTED
binlog-format = ROW
skip-innodb-read-only-compressed = ON
innodb_read_only_compressed = OFF
innodb_use_native_aio = OFF

innodb_fast_shutdown=0
innodb_max_dirty_pages_pct=0
innodb_buffer_pool_dump_at_shutdown=1
innodb_buffer_pool_load_at_startup=1

For the new MariaDB instance, I didn't add any customization to avoid any wrong options.


currently, it makes a recovery again:

#Friendica needs new contributors!

I'm not used to do this, but with the large influx of new users and node admins recently coming from #Twitter, our small team is now behind the curve for handling support requests, bug reports and bring about much-needed features.

The project is built on a #PHP / #MySQL platform, but we also need people to be able to assist others just using the software to give developers some space.

If you're willing and able to help, please follow @Friendica Support and the project on Github: github.com/friendica/friendica

Thank you!
