Sidekiq had it's database purged. About 2 million retries had accumulated, some months old, due to the issues with elasticsearch. It's clean now and missing toots will be fetched on demand (new toots are appearing as far as I can tell)
I reconfigured nginx and properly migrated to the new host, including pointing the DNS records at the new host, the old web/streaming still runs on the old host but it's going well.
