I have followed the procedure as below..
1) ./configure , make and make install for FreeRadiius Installation.
2) Added the below line in users file
      test            Auth-Type := pap, Cleartext-Password := "test"
3) Tested the performance by modifying create-users script and time command.

Pls advise if i have missed out anything to achieve more/normal  auths/sec

  Well... something is broken in your configuration.

  No.  The default configuration works, and should be able to do at
least 10K auth/s on normal hardware.
