Sorry about the multiple questions.
But, I really didnt get what tool to use for the following question :(
4. Are they good for scalability testing or should I look out for other open source wpa supplicants/NASs?
I will be grateful if you can answer this again for me please. Thanks again for reading my message.
Also, in question #2, what processes are you referring to? please shed some light on this. sorry again.
2. When you say "Just run 5-6 processes at the same time.", can one interface be used to send out multiple simultaneous wpa supplicant requests? If yes, how many wpa client sessions can i generate on 1 interface?

Doing 100K simultaneous sessions is pointless. Your CPU will max out
LONG before that. Read raddb/certs/README, the "performance" section.

Go back and read my message again. I didn't say run "wpa supplicant"

I have no idea what that means.

I already told you which tool to use. Why ask again?

Asking the same question twice in a row. Why?
