Hi Pete,
I haven't used "smee" for a long time. ;)

I run it using Openjdk 1.6 on FreeBSD and it's been up for 90 days at the moment.  It doesn't seem to leak memory much if at all and has been very reliable.  It also doesn't take much CPU so I don't think you'll have problems on your IRLP node.  It may consume more CPU on an older jvm that doesn't have the hotspot jvm improvements although I've run it on both 1.4 and 1.5 jvms with few problems.

You can also feed the status of your IRLP node into aprs with a script.  See;

I can plot a coverage map if you like.  Give me frequency, location, power and antenna height and I'll run it through splat.
