We are currently using a standard xmpp client and looking to convert to an inhouse BOSH client. I have seen people comment here about some limitations with Openfire’s bosh implementation.
I have seen reports of limitations of 500 and 1500 connections via bosh and also reports of connection drops and memory issues. I am not sure how many of these are situational or tied to an older version of Openfire.
I have setup punjab but we are on a windows box and I don’t like that its not implemented as a windows service, plus I don’t like adding another layer.
So basically I am looking for the official word on the state of bosh in Openfire3. 7.1 and if its own bosh implentation is stable for about 500 concurrent users and if thats still the case if there are 1000 concurrent users.
Our current implentation is 1 box running:
Windows Server 2008
MySQL 5 DB
Apache running a reverse proxy to openfire
Any feedback would be appreciated.
