FreeRADIUS starts in seconds. I have restarted FreeRADIUS in very large
production environments without a problem. If you are concerned about
availability, use multiple FreeRADIUS servers and/or a load balancer (F5,
Cisco, lvs, etc.).

Is this fix available now ? (freeradius server to read the change in
nas-table without restart)

  It's only read at re-start.

  It could be fixed, but it's not a high priority.
