RADIUS User Experience Monitor

This component monitor tests the capabilities of a RADIUS server and measures the time it takes to perform a base user authentication operation. This component monitor uses synthetic transactions to test user authentication through the RADIUS protocol. The synthetic transaction does the following:

  • Connect to server.
  • Send RADIUS credentials and a shared secret.
  • Validate response.
  • Measure response time.

Before using this monitor, the correct Authentication and Accounting port numbers, as well as the Secret key, should be provided.
