Hi Alan, 

I set an interval of 5 minutes in pppoe server to send user's
acctsessiontime etc. to Freeradius. Does it mean after login process, pppoe
server and freeradius still communicate each other?

  Well... the RADIUS server never talks to the PPPoE server after the
Access-Accept.  So *anything* that happens after that is the
responsibility of the PPoE server.

  The only way the SQL sockets affect users is *during* the login
process.  If FreeRADIUS can't access the DB because all of the sockets
are in use, it will reject the user.

  If the user gets an Access-Accept, it doesn't matter if there were 50
SQL sockets, or 50,000 SQL sockets.
