Well yeah -p works only with a file (-f)

so, feed your request multiple time to a file :
for d in {1..10000} ; do echo -e
"User-Name=001AAD3F8165\nNAS-IP-Address=\n" >>
rad-requests.txt ; done

(there need to be a empty line between request, hence the extra \n at
the end)

Send the requests, 100 at a time, and repeat 10 times

radclient -c 10 -p 100 -f rad-requests.txt server:port auth secret

Tested it here and works very well
