[jadmin] Capacity of Jabber Server 1.4 on Red Hat Linux

I don't know anything about clustering on 
Linux, but it's hard for me to imagine that 
it would gain you too much, since the server
application is single threaded (not the case
with the Jabber.com commercial server, of
course).  What's load would be balanced by
this "load balancing cluster"?

If you make it work, you could certainly 
write an intereresting white paper on the
project, so the rest of the Jabber commun-
ity could benefit.

Todd, thank you very much!

I am looking for a workable solution to scale up
the jabber server. Currently I am thinking to use
linux cluster. With LDAP as the xdb, can the jabber 
server run on linux load balancing cluster? 
Since I am not familiar with the jabberd internal
and the messaging, I don't know whether it is
worthwhile to have a try.
