There is the issue of whether the RADIUS server is multi-threaded or forking, 
or if it does all database lookups synchronously.

If the RADIUS server can only have one database lookup outstanding at any 
time (such as Radiator) then it'll be quite slow, and minor issues such as a 
small amount of network congestion between the RADIUS server and the database 
server can really kill performance.

Multithreaded servers such as FreeRADIUS don't have this problem and can 
deliver much greater performance.
