We are currently testin Freeradius 3.0.15 on Ubuntu 16.04 servers.
Accounting logging is enabled for Interim-Updates from our Wireless Aps and we are sending accounting information direct to our Palo Alto firewall test box via syslog on port 514 (UDP).
This is to collect username and IP address of users logging into our wireless network. This is working fine.

We have noticed via Nagios and top command that the freeradius service is using 99%+ CPU Load for long periods. Is there anything we can do to the configuration to reduce the load on the server?
