  You can run "radclient -x" to see what it's doing.  Printing the
sent/received packets slows it down, but not that much.

  When I run "radclient -q -c 10000", I can easily run 5k packets/s to
the local machine.  My tests from remote machines are a little slower,
but not 5 packets/s.

  I'd say there's something wrong in your network, but I'm not sure where.
