Are there any easy ways to scale a docker container based on sidekiq information?

@cambrian_era not really, I use a HPA in kubernetes, but that requires

- kubernetes
- metrics-server for scaling based on CPU
- a custom metric to feed metric server if you want to scale on backlog pressure

@sascha Ah well. It's not like it's that big a deal because we've got plenty of overhead for now but it still bugs me to use more resources than we need to just in case.

@cambrian_era on the scale of any mastodon instance it's probably sufficient to scale by hand once a week or so

I just went overkill with kubernetes didn't I

@sascha It's really that I'll probably use the server for other things at some point, but for now, it's not a big deal. If I need to, I can work on it.
