I am considering setting up a Jabber server on my dedicated server.  

It would be used for internal instant messanging for about 20 people.

What kind of bandwith and server resources will it likely use, both when users are logged on and idle or chatting?

Thanks!

Hmm I think it doesn't eat up too much bandwidth
As with msn messenger, it only eat 10mb d/l and 5 mb u/l for 3 months
It's with approx 3-4 hours a day to chat.

But if the users going to use video chat then ... I don't know :)
And as server resources just try to run it then you can see from taskmanager --> processes .

In my opinion, it's much easier and better to ask in Jabber forum.
The developer of this program will know for sure the statistics are.

Hope this help
Gd luck

And if you want to measure it when you actually run the server.
You can use some kind of bandwidth monitor.
I'm using NetLimiter which could limit the bandwidth used and it also can keep statistic for d/l and u/l used.
