Steps to increase the number of threads in BCAAA Server to improve the performance of BCAAA Authentication.  


In the BCAAA.ini file (by default installed under C:\Program File\/Blue Coat Systems\BCAAA) there is a 'NumThreads' parameter which controls the number of threads BCAAA will create upon startup per realm.
BCAAA.ini file:
; Set number of threads to use; recommended value is 2; if set to 0,
; only a single thread is used.
This value can be increased up to 100 based on requirements and recommendation by Broadcom Support team to improve the BCAAA authentication performance. The BCAAA service needs to be restarted after making the changes.
