I just recently came over to openfire from ejabberd simply for the ease of configuration and great management and reporting features of openfire. Been enjoying what I’'ve found but when I mentioned to a friend I was using openfire instead of ejabberd he said:
“Ya, openfire is nice just it is no where scalable for large applications, they dont have clustering support and you’'re better off to use something that can scale better.”
For you openfire pro’'s out there, what say you? Just how scalable is openfire? Is clustering something on the horizon?
My personal use of openfire is a bot install, there will be less than a half dozen users, but those users will be getting pounded with traffic. Is openfire too juvenile to do what I want to do.
