[RADIATOR] Radiator MultiThreading and Oracle Connection

Hello Hrair -

A single instance of Radiator is single threaded and each request is  
processed sequentially.

It is generally preferable to design high-capacity installations with  
multiple Radiator instances on multiple Radiator hosts with some form  
of load-balancing.

We are available on a contract basis for the design and installation  
of such systems and we have successfully undertaken these sorts of  
jobs for many organisations around the world.

It is also good design practice to run one Radiator process for  
authentication and another for accounting.
