I have been using rlm_ippool successfully for more than a year, and 
didnt have problems with it.

Since we have many IP pools(~4-10 per nas) and we need non-continuous IP 
addresses in pool, I would try SQL based pools.

I have read some posts that in MySQL you might get duplicate IPs if you 
have a lot of connections towards db...

Could you share your experience/opinions on sqlip/MySQL or 
sqlip/PostgreSQL under heavy load, if you use any ?
