This is similar to what I've monitored.

I do have two servers, but they are quite different.
This problematic one is running FreeBSD 8.1 on a VMWare ESX 4 system.
I've checked with our vmware admin and there's little load on the whole
vmware system.
The second, which is running just fine, is freeradius-1.1.6 on OpenBSD 4.1.
It's also on a VMWare platform, although a different one.

One more thing I'd like to add is that I don't believe I experienced these
exiting problems when I was running an older version of FreeBSD. I think
it started when I upgraded from 6.x to 7.x - and still continues after
reaching 8.1.
