Load Testing of Openfire

Hi all. Are there any load testing results freely available for Openfire. I’ve had a look but can’t find anything. I am trying to find out how many concurrent users Openfire can support on a given set of hardware. Any results willl do because I can extrapolate out from there. I could write a very simple program to simulate a load test for me, but I would prefer not to have to do this if I can avoid it.

Thanks in advance,

Stuart

Hi Stuart,

there are a few threads about scaling, the old wiki page with a Tsung load test manual is as far as I know no longer reachable. http://www.igniterealtime.org/community/thread/36560?start=0&tstart=0 contains some code, but this is not really a good load test. I think there are some more threads, but the search function to be tuned in a very special way … one may better use google.

I assume that you did already read http://www.igniterealtime.org/about/OpenfireScalability.pdf

Thanks guys. Thats what I was looking for. I have done a quick test myself and Openfire can easily handle my needs, even when running the db on the same machine, and the machine is 4 years old. It also looks like it will scale no problem for future requirements.

Thanks a lot,

Stuart

Hi Stuart,

if you want to use the monitoring plugin you may get memory problems as it stores everything in the database. The embedded database is held in memory, so the memory usage grows with every stored message.
