Can you give us any suggestion about the modification?
We're planning to use ejabberd, but many client will use http connection, I
think maybe more than 50% clients will through http to login. and the
clients will be about 500Ks

We are considering the structure of the servers, and how to implement...

In our test now, we only login and send the presence.
All the users have 80 contacts

We also test in 5222 port through socket connection (use Tsung test tool)
It's about more than 200KB memory consumption per connection without BOSH(in
5222 port), this also very wise,
and I saw sombody's test result(http://www.ejabberd.im/node/2840), they got
only 46KB
It also very strange....

We had enable the smp and kernel poll..

But other configuration is by default.
