I'm running pppoe-server from rp-pppoe-3.5 with ppp-3.4.3 using
the radius and radacct plugins. The system is Gentoo Linux running on
Intel Celeron 2.2Ghz with 256Mb RAM. I have approximately 470 concurrent

The CPU load on this machine never goes over 25% - this may seem a lot
but I am using iproute2 and the intermediate queuing device (IMQ) for
bandwidth control.

Perhaps we should continue the discussion off-list, as we seem to be
going off topic ;-)
