How do Connection Managers work?


Suppose I have a single Openfire server with two Connection Managers connected, and two users are connected to the same Connection Manager. If one user sends a message to the other, does the message go as far as the Openfire server, or does it just go as far as the connection manager?

Thanks in advance


The message will go through Openfire server. Connection Manager is not a server itself. It is designed to gather lots of connections and push them in one connection to a server, so the main server wouldn’t have to maintain so many open connections.
