Slow /photo/preview performance

!Friendica Admins

Hi all,

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

At first, it seemed like it helped and is faster than before (the performance of 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.

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.

Slow photo requests / inbox requests

Hi !Friendica Admins ,

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

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.
