In the cache manager repots there is a "ntlmauthenticators" report which
lists all the helpers and how loaded they are. For efficiency and easy
management the helpers are loaded so the first ones get a lot of
requests then it tails off towrads the last one. You want to get it so
that you have enough to cover peak traffic, but the last of your set is
rarely used.
