Today I learned a new German word: "Datensparsamkeit". It means something like data prudence. (Thanks Hoergen!)
The size of my node's database has steadily increased over the last four weeks, with a further sharp rise over the last few days.
The overall increase is about 40 per cent [40%!!] over four weeks. See the two graphs here: 👇
There haven't been any major changes to the usage of my system. Friendica configurations as shown below haven't been altered either (although I increased the mysql IB logfile setting). I updated to the 2021.09 release about about four weeks ago.
What's going on? How to interpret this increase in the DB's size?

SchuKo wallbox is that deep, that the plug has lost contact, when it is actually leaving the housing.
Yep, but some protruding systems also achieve a safely disconnected state. UK plugs usually have no live pins outside sockets. As soon as the metal part is exposed it's disconnected.
A major problem with the "Schuko" standard is the reliability of the Ground/ Earth conductor. Unlike (third) pin systems, theses side connectors are considerably more susceptible to failure.
The key issues here are what legal protection are in place, or better the lack of it.
In Britain, rail tracks were nationalised but smaller lines that didn't generate a lot of profits were gradually closed down and the tracks were sold for scape value! Most of the track land in the North of England was abandoned for decades and only in recent times some municipalities converted sections in into cycling lanes or hiking trails. A small part was used of real estate development, but more or less opportunistically rather the main driver of change.
The lesson IMO is that infrastructure should be protected and seen as a common good.
