  The server can proxy 5K packets/s.

  That's find.

  The limitation here isn't FreeRADIUS.  The limitation is your application.

  It means that FreeRADIUS doesn't respond to the client until the home server has responded to FreeRADIUS.

  And if you're looking at synchronous versus asynchronous configuration... you're using a *very* old version of the server.  Upgrade to a supported version.
