For my Jive Messenger Server 2.2.0 I am using a local MySQL database along with LDAP authentication. I want to scale to 2,500 users (Linux, dual cpu, 2gb RAM)
MySql is not a standard database at my company, so I am planning to move towards Oracle 9i (off box)
As I check usage of my database:
mysqlshow -i jive | cut -d"|" -f2,6,7,8
I’'ve noticed that with LDAP auth - growth will be dependent on vCard usage, roster groups, and MUC room usage.
In some ways - I almost feel I should stay on box with the embedded database - the eventual database size won’'t even fill a USB memory key!
Any thoughts on the subject are welcome. I would like to hear about similiar installs. I promise to report back my experiences after my rollout to my user base in the future!
