how to run sql query on radius startup

I'm implementing my own db-based auth setup, and I want to check stale 
sessions, which can be caused by power outage, improper NAS shutdown, 
etc, on radius server startup. Basically I'd just like to have some sql 
query hook which would be executed on startup - to check the DB state . 
I've looked over config files for different sql modules but haven't 
found anything similar.

So I'd like to clarify if such a query hook exists at all, and if not, 
how it can be done.

Also I would appreciate any freeradius-related suggestions or best 
practices for dealing with things like stale sessions, handling improper 
shutdown etc - I suppose it's a common and known problem and there is 
currently no time to reinvent the wheel :) . Any pointers or advices 
would be highly appreciated.

Thanks, Sergey.
