Monitor the database, not module. If last insert is x minutes/hours ago
send alert or even restart radiusd. I have an alert - first examine packet
that caused the freeze, then release the rest. In my experience every time
reason for the freeze was database backup - I am backing it up via the
network, so it can be slow.
