The complaints about performance problems are largely things like:
- overloaded SQL databases
- no indexes,
- long-running administrative queries blocking FreeRADIUS
- system overload
- a small system being asked to authenticate 100K users in 10s
- many PEAP authentications per second on a small system
I've done tests with 1M accounts in the "users" file. The server
takes 3 seconds to start, and then does 50K+ authentications per second.
Which is about the same speed as when there's 10 accounts in the
There are no performance problems inside of FreeRADIUS.
