If you are really getting 20 requests/second, that means you have to
< 50ms response times. The video display of debug mode probably adds
latency at minimum to each request, depending on the level of debug.
should always stop the service before running RadiusNT in debug mode and
only run one copy of RadiusNT. If you are not watching the debug,
the window, and the response time will be pretty close to when RadiusNT
running as a service.
