i've got same problem in the first time that i use freeradius,

first of all, you need to tune your mysql ( my.cnf ) with right
optimization, you can enable slow query logging in order to check if is
mysql or freeradius problem.

when your mysql works fine, you can tune freeradius, like increase sql
connection and other params, into the archive of ML you can find more

Kindly regards
