  This requires source code changes.  It's a very unusual situation, and not something which is supported in the default configuration.

  Another option is to use a load balancer, and multiple FreeRADIUS backends.  The short answer that if the GGSN is sending 5K packets/s, and the FreeRADIUS + DB back-end can only handle 1K packets/s, you've got problems.

  Adding more capacity is really the only solution.
