Thread Control Settings

This section provides information about the thread control settings in the [Settings] section of the radius.ini file.

  • Max-Auth-Threads = 1 to 100,000 (default value is 100)
  • Max-Acct-Threads = 1 to 100,000 (default value is 200)
  • Max-Proxy-Threads = 1 to 100,000 (default value is 100)

Each thread setting controls the maximum number of threads allocated to handle the system load. The authentication and accounting thread settings handle all authentication and accounting requests, while proxy threads are responsible for forwarding accounting requests to proxy realms configured with Block=0. In this case, a separate proxy thread is used to handle the forwarding of the request, while the original accounting thread delivers the response to the NAS.

  • Auth-Receive-Realtime-Thread-Priority = <0-2,147,483,647> (default value is 2,147,483,647, not real time)
  • Acct-Receive-Realtime-Thread-Priority = <0-2,147,483,647> (default value is 2,147,483,647, not real time)

Proxy thread priority is set by the RealTime configuration setting in the [Configuration] section of the proxy.ini file.

For WorkerThreadStackSize in the [Settings] section of the radius.ini file, the default value is 512K (524,288).
