  The documentation is clear.  Load-balancing is simple to configure.
It's documented in proxy.conf.

  My guess is your test is wrong.  You're probably sending packets in
*series*.  The latency added by a proxy slows down series, so that it
takes longer.

  If you send packets in parallel, you would see a higher latency for
each packet, but the ability to process more packets per second.

  You've admitted to not knowing much about RADIUS.  If the test doesn't
do what you expect, the obvious conclusion is to blame the test, not

  Alan DeKok.
