I’‘m using Jive Messenger 2.1.3 from April 1st that’‘s available from the nightly builds page. Using this version (I’'m not sure about previous versions) if you change the “admin” option for a user in a shared group, JM floods the clients with subscription notices.
The problem is so noticable here because our user database is Active Directory (LDAP). With 400 users, JM generates a ton of traffic for what appears to be no reason. Just to be clear, here is what I’'m seeing. First, notices of people that are not assigned to a shared group:
Then we see the people that are part of a shared group:
I receive one of these for every one of the 400+ users in our LDAP directory. While looking into this problem, feel free to go ahead and implement JM-129 as well. How hard can it be, right?
The side effects of this, in Pandion at least, is that the roster gets rebuilt and Pandion shows tons of “so-and-so is now available” messages when nothing has really changed. I’‘ll grant you that this is really a Pandion problem, but it appears to be JM that’'s misbehaving which causes Pandion to misbehave as well.
