FreeRadius 1.0.1 here, the one which comes as standard with RHEL 4.
I want to use a whole class B subnet (172.16.0.0/16) in an ippool declaration
to assign IP addresses from. Now it is said that the cache-size parameter
should be equal to the number of IP addresses in the pool. But if I try to set
it to 65536, the server won't start (it'll crash actually).
So what is the **real** meaning and use of this parameter ? You have to specify
the start and end of the pool, so then why set another parameter with a value
that can be trivially calculated by the server anyway ?
And more importantly, what are the right guidlines on setting the value for
this parameter ? Making it equal to the number of IP addresses in the pool
won't work and it just doesn't make any sense to me.
Finally, if I change the value of this parameter, beside restarting FreeRadius,
do I have to do anything else ? Do I have to delete the related database and
index files in order for the change to take place ?
Thank you in advance.
