+- Check-in
+ - bandali
+ - Things have been a little tough recently. :(
+ - Work has been busy; less so than a couple of weeks ago, but still busy
+ - zaeph
+ - Lots of interesting projects going on the side, but no time for much things on
+ - mplsCorwin
+ - Arrived near the end of the meeting

+- Next actions from last week

+ - FH servers:
+ - Ask FH for more RAM on the BBB server
+ - Set up the vm01 server
+ - Listing the specs for the non-FH servers
+ - Podcast:
+ - Think about announcing the podcast

+ - Not here today
+ - zaeph:
+ - Was quite busy; didn’t have time to do much
+
+- Performance review for bbb
+ - Stress-test with Emacs-SF where we peaked at 33 concurrent viewers/participants
+ - Conclusions:
+ - CPU load:
+ - Load increases linearly with the number of video streams (screen-share or webcams) connected
+ - 6 video streams were enough to saturate the CPUs (90%)
+ - The number of people connected via audio barely influences load
+ - The high usage might be due to the RAM being full
+ - RAM usage:
+ - Increases with number of users connected (audio or video)
+ - In different scenarios (on top of the average usage of 2GB)
+ | Processing recording | 0.5 GB |
+ | Conferencing (2 people) + Processing previous recording | 1 GB |
+ | Conferencing (33 people) | 1.5 GB |
+ - Next things to address on this question:
+ - See if increasing the RAM results in less CPU usage
+ - If 8 GB does not work out, we’re happy to only ask 6 GB
+ - Working with the swap
+ - Decreasing the swapiness of the kernel might help
+ - Test RW speed (elsewhere than ~/tmp/~)
+ - Check if we can change the ffmpeg prioritisation for BBB (so as to get recordings out sooner, or to manage them ourselves)
+ - Does bbb spawn a ffmpeg process that we can investigate?
+
+- bandali’s investigation into Mailman
+ - Problem with FH email; probably an IPv6 problem?
+ - Will need more investigation, especially if we are to give an email to Emacs APAC (or other usergroups that desire it)
+
+- mplsCorwin: Talk with Nate Sales
+ - We want to talk with Nate Sales about CDN stuff
+ - mplsCorwin will be asking Nate Sales to come again on [2021-05-01 Sat]
+
+- mplsCorwin update on FH
+ - mplsCorwin is mentioning that we might get another server to handle
+ - Depending on the location
