we are always in a battle with performance and load. you've already had a pretty
good description of what the messages mean but I can offer another possible
cause - in the PEAP module hang - I would suspect that you have the MSCHAP retry
password option set? if so, you're waiting for the user to get around to
typing in their details again...and again and again as they get it wrong
or typo-fixed by their smartphone or tablet.  we see similar messages
at busy times of new devices (like start of year)
