Hi! I’ve done some research on self hosting Matrix for Matrix Bridges on a Raspberry Pi 5. Some people have said online that Matrix will be too beefy for an RPI due to large federated chatrooms and information. However, would it still be worthwhile installing just for my own bridges for social media, and maybe as a secure way for friends to interact?

Thanks in advance!

    From my limited Raspberry PI experience I believe their single core performance isn’t great and synapse at least is single threaded. You’d have to use workers to utilize the other cores. If you have multiple pi devices you could also utilize workers on different pis and hosting postgres on one. Using only one, it would likely be quite slow like others noted.
