- anything php based would involve polling which will kill
any server when trying to create a realtime chat environment
(1 request per second per chatter + 1 for each message send + normal
hits) - so say 30 chatters and you have at a minimum 30 requests per
second with all the weight and db hits they involve.
if you check <http://chat.tchatche.com/> then you will see, they refesh
only all 5-8 seconds. Currently I have encountered a maximum of ~4800
users connected at once. I am already trying a small thing with 5 frames
imitating the above website and already used it with 10 clients at once
which work on a Quad-Xeon (P3/550MHz/768MByte) on a 2.5 MBit Internet
in all honesty I'd recommend using openfire together with sparkweb or a
custom client - that combo is premade, feature packed, opensource and
can easily handle circa 50k users in realtime per server (connections
and things aside). Additionally its a proper jabber server so you can
have desktop clients, mods and of course full featured IM with custom
addresses, openid and integrated in with yahoo, gtalk, msn, aol,
*whatever* accounts as well.
I have a Jabber Server (Package "jabber"; Debian Distribution) installed
but no one want to use it... Pidgin is working perfectly with it and is
available on ALL Operating Systems.
However, I need a Webinterface where People can connect to others een if
they have NO Laptop/Smartphone with them.
Is there a USER Web-Interface to Jabber?
going down the php route is a complete waste of time imho (unless you
are creating a custom php socket server which bypasses apache,
implementing XMPP and connecting in the users client via flash, flex or
a java client)
I was thinking on a Flash/Java solution too, but I do not know HOW TO
create this Flash-Stuff and do not even code Java.
yours, not of a very strong opinion, nathan
hi - there is a load of really high quality open source flash (well as3)
stuff, really you want to be using the ignite realtime / jive stuff
its all java and flash and open source.
openfire is a 2 minute install and all web based interfaces for admin -
v good java server
sparkweb is a flex based web interface thats v good, has chat and im in
it, again you just upload it and your done
xiff api is the as3 framework for flex and it's v good - it use it on a
few sites and its so light its unreal + instant / realtime.
it's not worth bastardizing these old techs when you can have the
cutting edge stuff set up in minutes (hours the first time). Even if you
customise the ass off it and use a "bespoke" front end in flex / flash,
you are still going to be much faster than the php route and a MUCH
better end product that's light on the server.
