I wonder if I should get rid of Elastic Search on this Mastodon instance. In theory, it's a nice feature, but it's a huge performance drain. Not sure.

@smeg Forgive my complete ignorance but what would the alternative be?

@bnmng I think only usernames and profiles are searchable, maybe hashtags. Not the full text of posts. I've found some other ways to gain performance improvements.
