Cometd Oort is extension to the jetty/java cometd server intended to provide a scalable comet cluster. Cometd Seti is an extension of Oort to enable the identification and location of connected users within an Oort cluster and the routing of messages to specific users.

The jetty/java cometd server is itself highly scalable and can terminate 10s of thousands of cometd loads. However clusters are desirable for for many deployments either more simultaneous clients are required, message rates may limit the clients that can be supported per server or availability targets are such that multiple servers are required.

The services that Oort provides include:

  • The discovery and connection of other Oort Comet servers.
  • The distribution of channels

Once a cluster is established, use
