  That's good to hear.

Until this happens, it works just fine.

  The only solution is to fix the DB.  No amount of poking FreeRADIUS will make the DB run faster.

  I'm continually amazed at the number of databases which just don't work.  How can you possibly rely on a DB when it takes seconds to respond to simple queries?
