Hello Everyone -

The topic of controlling the number of radius requests directed to  
Radiator has been discussed several times on the list. It now appears  
that Cisco at least has been listening, and they have released this new  
throttling feature to control the rate of transmission of radius  
requests sent to a radius server.

In summary our position has been that the place to throttle radius  
requests is in the NAS equipment, as once the requests have been sent  
to Radiator it is too late for Radiator to do anything sensible to  
limit the rate at which the requests are sent.

Hopefully all Radiator customers using Cisco equipment will find this
