RSA Authentication Agent 7.3.3 for Microsoft Windows
The Installation Guide explains in Appendix A how Dynamic Load Balancing of the Agent works.
Could you provide some additional details on:
1. What response time from the AM server does it measure. Is it a network ping or does it attempt a trial authentication ?
2. How often does the Agent perform the time requests against the AM servers to ensure the priority list is still valid ?

Thanks for your response.
With regard point 2.So it does a check of the response times before every authentication. So if we have 1000 Users authenticating concurrently we will have 1000 Agents all doing a check of the response times from each AM server. That seems quite an overhead doesn't it ?
