Hi All,

This query is regarding using freeRadius  as proxy server as part of loadbalancing activity.  In turn this proxy server would redirect the accounting requests to two other freeRadius servers. We have tried this setup, for 20 accounting messages simultaneously and it worked pretty well.

 However, we would it like to scale up to 1million users and would like to know if it have performance impact on the proxy server(with the foresaid setup would it be enough to handle a high traffic with 1 proxy & 2 freeRadius servers?) as all the radius-acct messages(for ~1million users) from the NAS are pumped to the only proxy server.
