thanks alan
Actually I am using load balancing for rapid authentication of users. let
suppose i have one prosy server that is proxying incoming requests to these
five servers. Theoratically the speed of authentication should be fast. But
in case of mine it is too slow.
I have changed 'max_requests' in radiusd.config. And also remove
unnecessary processing on radius server (that is proxying requests). Now
tell me what else can I do?? :(

Though i am a new bee in RADIUS, but I think Proxy server is the bottle
