This module provides public access to Prosodys internal statistics trough the XEP-0039: Statistics Gathering protocol. This is a simple protocol that returns triplets of name, unit and value for each know statistic collected by Prosody. The names used are the internal names assigned by modules or statsmanager, names from the registry are not used.


Enabled as usual by adding to modules_enabled:

-- Enable Prosodys internal statistics gathering
statistics = "internal"

-- and enable the module
modules_enabled = {
    -- other modules



Statistics can be queried from the XML console of clients that have one:

  <query xmlns=""/>

<iq type="result" to="" id="dTMERjt5">
  <query xmlns="">
