Job posting

We’re looking for a part time openfire admin, is this where I can add a request for one?

well, here it is

We’re looking for a consultant who can assist us in optimizing our openfire server. Currently we are struggling getting our server to handle oddly enough, 930 users. At this point, openfire does not seem to add any more! All hardware seems to be more than ready to handle more (Memory, processor, hard drive). It always stops at 930!

Please let me know if anyone is interested in being paid to help us on this one.

We are running some flavor of linux (I can give more detail later)

Have you tried increasing your Java Memory to solve this? (see below); do you have enough memory to handle this. Use the attached link file below and drop in your openfire/bin folder to increase. If you’ve tried this, already-not sure what other direction to give you. Good Luck

Custom Parameters

Advanced users may wish to pass in parameters to the Java virtual

machine (VM) to customize the runtime environment of Openfire. You can

do this by creating vmoptions files in the bin/ directory of your

Openfire installation. For the Windows service, you’d create a new text

file called openfire-service.vmoptions. Each parameter to the VM should

be on a new line of the file. For example, to set the minimum heap size

to 512 MB and max VM heap size to 1024 MB, you’d use:

Thanks for the reply, yeah… this is what I have right now…

/opt/openfire/jre/bin/java -server -Xmx1024m -DopenfireHome=/opt/openfire -Dopenfire.lib.dir=/opt/openfire/lib -classpath /opt/openfire/lib/startup.jar -jar /opt/openfire/lib/startup.jar
