I have no idea as I've never used it myself.

As I have said in my another mail in this thread, if you really need
file exchange via storing files on a server, I do not see why not
use good old HTTP[S] and software specifically tailored to do it well
(generations of developers have put lots of effort to make this thing
scale, look at HAProxy for instance).  XMPP would then be used as a
carrier to pass URLs to resources between the users of your application.
