We will have roughly 8+ AP's. We have found that off-the-shelf AP's can handle around 60-70 users. But that doesn't still doesn't solve the problem of the XO's getting bogged down by tons of ejabberd chatter. DSD: do you have any ideas about this? We are looking at about 100-150 students per school and connecting 3-4 schools to a central XS. > As I mentioned before... I am working on xs-0.6, with the > moodle-ejabberd magic. That's great, but our pilot starts in a month but that doesn't fit our timeline. I don't want to send out a completely new, untested XS into rural parts of Nepal.

I didn't provide much server stats last time because the XS resource usage isn't a critical problem. > Thanks for the list below.

That's the whole point of why I am telling you about such problems and how they make a centralized XS easier for us to maintain. -- Bryan W.
