Just before I first start running this test, the total memory in use hover
around 36,000k out of 228464. Physical Memory Available hovers around
6000k. When radlogin is started, it may jump up to 37,000k. The longer the
radlogin runs the higher the memory in use go up gradually. Physical
memory available stays steady. After about 90,000 logins, it'll go thru
15-20 (time:70) logins, then appears to get stuck on a login then cycles
thru 15-20 more. each time that occurs, the time gets longer and longer on
the login it gets stuck on. Only then, the CPU usage will drop to 11%
after running 100% all the other times.The memory in use is about 95,000k
at this point. The memory does not come back then either. The physical
memory available was stable thru all this till the slow down occurred, then
it is round between 100k - 500k the entire time.
By about this time I have to abort, cause it might take a year to let it
run thru all the the logins. Then the memory comes back.
