  It's how RADIUS works.  If you want to know more, read RFC 2865 and RFC 5080.

  <shrug>  If the server is blocking in rlm_rediswho, then the database does have issues.

  Maybe you're using another database too, and that database is also slow.

  Again, this isn't complex  FreeRADIUS can do 50K packets/s if it's just doing ACKs.  If your system isn't doing that, it's because of local changes.

  We've run FR with sustained loads of 5-10K packets/s to a database.  But that is a very carefully designed system.
