Have you thought about using a web application to manage your
radius database deployment?

There's dialupadmin that comes with freeradius and there's daloradius

Even with the NAS information in a database such as MySQL you'd
have to restart the server when you update the NAS entries.

First of populate your nas table with some nas information.
Edit sql.conf and uncomment the readclients=yes (should be present
in the bottom of the file).
