just fixed an issue with's sidekiq worker that was causing it to frequently (30-60s) restart, interrupting longer-running tasks and possibly causing posts to get lost from feeds. hopefully things should be a bit more stable now

mastodon administration, technical details 

if you run mastodon on ubuntu or debian with jemalloc and you notice sidekiq crashing frequently, it may be related to this issue with FFI:

the fix in our case was to add LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ to the systemd unit files, so that all native (non-ruby) code could use the same memory allocation system

@chr Will feeds that were missing posts be corrected in time, or is anything that didn’t show then basically never show?

@OberstKrueger if it wasn't corrected shortly after the fix, it probably won't be corrected, but missing posts can still be fetched by loading threads that they may have been a part of and pasting direct URLs into the search bar
