(RADIATOR) Radiator performance on various platforms.

Hello Brian -
The largest installation that we are aware of currently runs on multiple SUN
servers (each with multi-processors and each running two instances of
Radiator). These servers have a load-balancer in front of them and on the
backend there is an enterprise class SUN server running Oracle.
This installation has tested throughput up to 1200 radius requests per second.
On any modern hardware you will see throughput in the several hundreds per
second. However you need to be aware that the performance limitations are
almost always due to external factors such as the database.
Most of the people on the mailing list seem to use Linux, followed by Solaris
and *BSD. There are also many smaller installations running Windows and MacOS
(BTW - MacOS X is *really* nice...).

Radiator: the most portable, flexible and configurable RADIUS server
anywhere. Available on *NIX, *BSD, Windows 95/98/2000, NT, MacOS X.
Nets: internetwork inventory and management - graphical, extensible,
flexible with hardware, software, platform and database independence.
