Traffic from this Denial of Service user agent has been blocked at Cloudflare and the instance has returned to normal operating levels.

We have identified a specific web user agent driving hundreds of thousands of requests to the instance per hour. This user agent "mastodonpy" has been blocked at Cloudflare.
We're still monitoring the recovery of the instance and thank you for your patience.

We made changes at Cloudflare and are noticing that queues are dropping and web app latency is returning to normal levels.
