Is there anything in the radius log file? See /var/log/freeradius/radius.log (path may be different on Centos)?

I’m using FR 3.0.12 on a CentOS 7 and while running as service the process runs into watchdog timeout:

systemd: radiusd.service watchdog timeout (limit 1min)!
systemd: radiusd.service: main process exited, code=killed, status=6/ABRT
systemd: Unit radiusd.service entered failed state.
systemd: radiusd.service failed.

Here’s my Unit-File:

Description=FreeRADIUS multi-protocol policy server
Documentation=man:radiusd(8) man:radiusd.conf(5) <> <>

ExecStartPre=/usr/local/sbin/radiusd $FREERADIUS_OPTIONS -Cx -lstdout ExecStartPre=/usr/bin/chown radiusd:radiusd /usr/local/var/run/radiusd ExecStart=/usr/local/sbin/radiusd $FREERADIUS_OPTIONS Restart=on-failure


Any suggestions what could be wrong? Is more information for an analysis needed?
Thanks a lot!
