The PostgreSQL support has not been included into a released version but 
is in the CVS development version.

Regarding the benchmark, I had to stop for some time. When I stop, I had 
finished the script to create a user base with typical roster 
distribution size. I now need some time to run the benchmark. It will 
probably require several launch to get a nice load increase that does 
not kill the Jabber server too fast but that still go slowly to the 
breaking point.
Your mail is a strong inventive to  relaunched this work on my part.

Regarding memory usage, there is still a problem remaining that show 
abnormal use of memory. we are working on the problem currently and the 
benchmark setup is clearly a good step in helping us identifying the 
conditions of the problem.

I am planning to work with the Erlang team to help us find out what the 
problem is.

What is the status of Jabber.org server ? Do you still have ongoing 
problem with it ?
