  This is a very common question.  The database is slow, so FreeRADIUS can't reply to the request.

  FreeRADIUS doesn't ask the GGSN for another packet.  The GGSN retransmits the same packet, and FreeRADIUS just receives it.

  Fix your database so it doesn't block the server.

  FreeRADIUS can do ~50K packets/s if it's doing nothing more than sending a reply.  Once you add complex rules and a database, that performance drops significantly.
