chatbox/shoutbox what kind is better ?

Hi,

I am seeing all these chatboxes and shoutboxes for vb 3.7 series but which one would not cause server issues when installed? i tried couple of them when i was on vb 3.6.8 but most of them eats a lot of server resources causing hight load or even spike.

Well chatbox and shoutbox is pretty much the same and not to cause too much load,I suggest you do not pick an AJAX one.

I use GBOS. I don't like buttons or extra options. This is a very basic shoutbox that types out the characters one by one after you press enter. Sort of looks like an old DOS type command line internet chat.

Wondering the same... MGC Chatbox EVO gave me white pages. vbShout is no longer supported. GBOS looks a little scary/unfriendly, reminds me of a MS Dos Prompt.

I'm using Dream Chatbox on 3.7.4 and my server load has been minimal, but I'm also running a very light member base thus far too.

I own a server hosting two vbulletin forums (1GB database, 10K members each) and one thing I can say right now: inferno vbshout consumes more than 90% of system resources (cpu and SQL usage)... that is one *badly* written script. Once I disable shoutbox on one of my forums, server load drops by 40-50% depending on the time of a day... This is pure crazyness - I wonder if I can put a html frame with a chat room in an external IRC session there with usernames being somehow transfered - it would release a lot of system resources... :|

...tell it to users on my forums They love inferno sb for this automatic refresh feature. If I tell them that we need to make a step "back" to "refresh-button" style, they will kill me
