@girish no, they're pretty useless. Their web UI S3 console is such crap it can't handle the chatty API requests and keeps timing out. Also I may be wrong that multiple directories are because of failures and restarts. It just looks like multiple changed apps per day get a new dir.
So I am attempting other workarounds. Like creating a new bucket and just nuking the old one.
rsync isn't great for object store backups as it makes a ton of small files.
tgz isn't great as it's a lot of repeated information.
We need something hybrid that is the best of both.
Something like backing up to a local Minio much more quickly then doing an object to object store transfer offsite, which is much more efficient. This may also offer an opportunity to dedupe and further optimize.
@robi indeed, the UI needs some fixing, the public status page doesn't look great as well.
I reckon it depends on your usecase: You could either add all customers websites as admin and link them to the corresponding users, so they can check their uptime or you install one instance per customer and give those users admin rights so they can monitor themselves.
Seems like more of a build toolchain thing, which would sort of put it up to those of us packaging apps and/or perhaps the build service to pick up as a feature. Intriguing, but strikes me as high-effort for middling (at best) reward at first blush.
