Sorry,let me explain the purpose first --
We are trying to have a server solution(FreeRADIUS) that would store radius 
accounting messages coming from NAS.Our data server(separate node) will 
query this FreeRADIUS server to get info of particular subscribers for 
generating CDRs.
Since the incoming radius msg rate will be very high,hence we want to 
evaluate the number of transactions per second(writes basically) on Berkeley
