Device always responds. No problems with connection nor device load. If I
leave the server running user will try to login for ages, if it was a snmp
connection problem, it would be able to login after some time. I have to
kill server, change the nas_type to other, start server, so the user can
login and server is not freezing anymore.

We have only about 15 user and not planning to go larger than 250 user per
radius server, as Alan DeKok suggested last time, it is OK to use radutmp
in this case.

As I mentioned before, if I add the   exec("/usr/bin/radzap", "-u",
$ARGV[3], "", "secret"); before return 0 in the end of
mikrotik_snmp sub in checkrad file, everything works as expected. So it
might be a check bug or smth.
