Total users 27903 Total number of users in all MUCs. Since we do not (and can not) track the real identities of users, this most certainly includes duplicates.

Stale domains 6 Number of domains which haven’t been reachable for more than 24 hours. Domains which are not reachable for more than seven days are removed from the database, unless they are being advertised by other domains.

Footnotes:

  1. So some people apparently find it useful to host "echo" services which simply reflect the query back to the sender. They act like a mirror. So when the search.jabber.network Crawler asks them for the software they’re running, it effectively asks itself without knowing that it does that. That’s what those "search.jabber.network Crawler" entries are.
