CometService can be used in the following two cases:
With every plan you get a fixed number of messages per month. Only received messages are counted. No deduction is made for sent messages. So if two users are chatting on your site, and they exchange 40 messages, then 40 messages will be deducted. CometService is applicable for one-on-one messaging and chatrooms.
We will send you warnings when your messages are used over the plan limit. In the next month you will be asked to upgrade your plan.
Traditionally, CometChat uses smart-polling i.e. it polls between 3-12 seconds depending on user activity. This may add to extra load on your server. When you subscribe to CometService, all this extra load is transferred to our optimized servers and polling on your server is reduced to once every 60 seconds (to synchronize the Who's Online list). CometService, thus, is able to reduce your server load by 95% almost instantly.
