so 60 k concurrent- acces
With the right hardware Messenger can handle approximately 5000 current users, so you’‘d be looking at needing at least half dozen servers to handle 60K concurrent users, plus a spare or two. Most likely you’‘d want to spread the load across 16 or more servers so they aren’'t running at 100% capacity all the time.
The two main Messenger developers, Matt and Gato, have more experience with large installations than I do. Maybe they can jump in here and offer up some ideas?
