3.38.35. CachePasswords Previous topic Parent topic Child topic Next topic

This parameter enables a user password cache in this AuthBy RADIUS. It allows proxying to be more robust when the remote server is not available. It can be very useful if the remote server is unreliable, or at the end of a slow, saturated or unreliable link. The exact behaviour of when the password cache is consulted is controlled by the CacheOnNoReply parameter.
Use of this parameter with a large user population can cause large amounts of memory use by the Radiator process.
If Radiator is restarted, the password cache is lost.
Matching of cached passwords can never succeed for CHAP or MS-CHAP authentication requests.
