These few telemetry data show that it is not necessary to have a high-powered, energy-intensive bare-metal to host a personal Matrix instance.
- A Rock64 server for the Matrix service
- A Rock64 server for the Postgresql database
- Number of users: 11
- Number of rooms: 50
- Number of federated rooms: 8
- Number of federations: 1
- The federation has a total of 3800 hours of use
- My matrix instance has 5000 hours of use
(*) The federated body is located in India. It is installed on a Rock64, which hosts the Matrix service and the Postgresql service.
30-day telemetry (Prometheus/Grafana) :
No major failures were found, the service is stable and reliable. We use the Riot.im application in mobile and desktop versions.
Since one month the Matrix service is installed on a Raspberry PI3, the database has remained on the Rock64.
We did not find any real differences in use.
I never did the test by hosting Matrix and Postgresql on a single Raspberry.
After analyzing these few data, it is undeniable that this topology can support a much larger number of users.
