  FreeRADIUS (even version 2) can easily do 20K packets/s on normal hardware.  If you're having trouble with 10 packets/s, the problem is not FreeRADIUS.

  Fix the database so it isn't slow.  Be sure that *all* SQL queries have indexes.  Be sure that the accounting tables don't have millions of rows.

  And as always, the default config works.  If you install v2 and the v2 SQL schemas, you'll easily be able to get 200 packets/s, even to SQL.

  So... what changed in your system?  What part of it is *not* using the default config?
