  Use v3.1.x from git.

  It has a "map" keyword, where you can map RADIUS attributes directly to SQL columns, and vice-versa.

  You could use the cache module in v3.0.  It can cache attributes based on a key (e.g. User-Name) for a long time.

  In v3.0, don't do that.  Use 3.1, or the cache module in v3.0

  SQL database are *terrible* at caching.  You should avoid using them for caching.
