I'm thinking about setting up a jabber/xmpp daemon. Now I can't really decide which daemon to use.

I've heard and read that jabberd2 and ejabberd are both good choices, but which one is better? Maybe there's even another which can come up with jabberd2/ejabberd?

I'm looking for a rather light-weighted daemon.

Thanks for your answers :)

The jabber daemon choice depend really on your requirements.

  • ejabberd: pros - lots of features; cons - needs loads of memory
  • jabberd2: pros - fast and small
  • prosody: pros - very small, Lua scripted; cons - young thus lacks features

Thanks! I guess I'll go compare memory usage between ejabberd and jabberd2. –  watain Jan 29 '10 at 16:01
