jabber

(1) An error in which a faulty device (usually a NIC ) continuously transmits corrupted or meaningless data onto a network. This may halt the entire network from transmitting data beacuse other devices will perceive the network as busy.

(2) A sent data packet greater than the maximum 1518 bytes specified in IEEE 802.3. To prevent this, jabber control should be added to the hardwareto make the circuitry incapable of sending information for more than 150 milliseconds (approximately 1500 bytes).

(3) When capitalized as Jabber, an open XML protocol for message and presence exchange in real time between two points on the Internet. Jabber��s asynchronous instant messaging (IM) platform is similar to IM systems such as AIM, ICQ and MSN but is open source, extensible through XML, decentralized (allowing anyone to run a Jabber server), and any Jabber server can be isolated from the public Jabber network in order to increase security. The Jabber project was started by Jeremie Miller in early 1998.
