Xtremio Excels Excellently

After our recent hosting of public TorrentIO / Knightcrawler and Annatar instances, I was approached to take over hosting of another community Addon, the "Xtremio IPTV" addon. This one doesn't use Real-Debrid at all, but if you plug in your paid IPTV subscription details (assuming your provider supports xtreme codes), you can stream all your IPTV content inside Stremio!

It was a fun little addon to integrate, since there's no persistence or database required - you can see the final result at, and the public traefik stats here.

We do now offer hosted instances of Xtremio, which provide the same features, but with a higher rate-limit.

ElfBot can now force-kill pods

While it doesn't happen as often as it used to (we have 20 nodes now for tenant workloads), we still sometimes see the occasional #badelf, and users find pods that are "stuck" in a terminating state. I'm working on more automated remediations for situations like this, but in the meantime, I've given ElfBot the power to "force-restart" such stuck pods. See details on the ElfBot docs.

Disk usage message refactored, I/O load reduced

At the top of your ElfHosted dashboard is a summary of your current disk usage. This used to include links to a per-volume-generated "tree" view helping to identify disk usage across each volume, but with the proliferation of "infinite" streaming libraries now, and the volume of users, I suspect that this tree view generation (which happened hourly) was contributing significant I/O load.

I've refactored the message so that it'll still refresh the disk used/free stats hourly, but the process of calculating where your disk space is going, is now a manual process using ElfBot.
