Open Source

I have been having trouble with a jabber server that we have on our intranet at work. The server is on a linux box running on a P3 class 1Ghz with 256MB RAM. The server usually has a load of about 15 people max. Now the problem - whenever multiple users join a conference room, the linux box CPU goes to 100% and jabber stops responding. Then I have to kill the jabber process to get it back running. All the clients are Windows based clients called exhodus. Anybody has a clue? Please mail me at vivek at magic hypen cauldron dot com.


We have had problems with handling the load that the server will receive during peak times. We have been working round the clock to see what we can do to improve the situation. Currently running with a throttle on the number of users of the site. Hopefully situation will improve soon.

Open Source

I am seeing a lot of downloads on the new version of CVSPermissions. Good to know that it is appreciated. Since I moved to Sarovar, I am able to see statistics on the site which is a good thing. I should also host my Advogato Poster on Sarovar. I think there will be people interested in a blogging software for advogato. Yes?


We went live over the weekend. Been having sleepless nights since then :-(. Contractual obligations prevent me from mentioning about details here but its not hard to figure out :-). We have had a few hiccups so far. Nothing that cannot be solved but has resulted in sleepless nights never the less.
