ScaleArc Authentication Offload
You enable or disable ScaleArc authentication offload. Enabling authentication offload can speed up performance significantly. The bi-product of this feature provides connection pooling and multiplexing. Client sessions terminate on ScaleArc instead of the database. ScaleArc provides session management by reducing the total number of sessions to the DB servers, which in turn increase performance.
- On the ScaleArc dashboard, click Clusters.
- Go to the Settings column. Click Users and DBs to open the screen.
- Notice that the screen lists the existing users associated with the cluster.
The fields are as follows:
