Maximum concurrent connections?

I want to know the Maxinum concrrent connections. Please do not consider the hardware and the OS enviroment, because i can improve the hardware and install any OS. I just want to know the limit of wildfire. Who can help me? Thank you very much.

Rumours are that in its current condition, Wildfire probably won’'t scale above 15,000 concurrent users.

Jive Software recently started the Pampero project, which will dramaticly improve this number. First results are expected in a couple of months. You can find more information in the Pampero forum.

Dear Guus,

Thank you very much for your reply! Does your mean the maximum conncurrent connections is 15,000? Where do you get the information? Can you give me address? Because someone said that “Wildfire can easily accommodate 5000 concurrent users”


So I am comfused .Can you tell me the exact number and give how do you get the number?

   And  I have seen the Pampero forum but did not find very clearly information. Did  I go to the wrong place?http://www.jivesoftware.org/community/thread.jspa?threadID=15824

The place I went is a Thread not a forum. Can you give me the link to “Pampero forum” ?

Thanks again!

Best wishes!

You can find the Pamero forum here:


The 15,000 is an estimate, which I base on various messages on this forum. It’'s by no means an absolute (or even correct) number. As far as I know, no-one ever published attempts to go over 10,000 users.

Actually, according to Matt in url=http://www.jivesoftware.org/community/thread.jspa?threadID=18275this thread[/url] there has been a least one instance of Wildfire successfully scaling to 20K concurrent users.

If you need a solution now, you can take a look at other Jabber servers. There are proprietary, as well as open-source solutions that are contructed to scale very high. Here’'s a list of other server software: http://www.jabber.org/software/servers.shtml

Thanks to ryang, I have got the information I wanted!

Thanks to Guus! Thanks to your quick reply!

Thanks to Sanderd,your information is very important to me!

Any all , thanks to all the people who reply to me again! I find all the people in this forum are so kind! I believe wildfire will become better and better!
