The registered company name is KOCNET.

We used to faced with this slow database response problem in the past and we changed our radius configuration to write a file and after that we proccess this file. 
We use radius only for accounting not for authentication.

BTw: This accounting problem occurs when we face with high volume traffic. Normal days, we don't face with this accounting problem.

Hello Hadi -

I will need to see a copy of your configuration file and a trace 4  
debug from Radiator showing what is going on.

Could you also please tell me the name of the registered company that  
has purchased this copy of Radiator?

BTW - it is usually slow database response that causes performance  
problems, and the best way to see exactly what is going on is to add  
a microseconds log.

Ie: add something like the following to your Radiator configuration file

# microseconds log
# NB - requires Time-Hires from CPAN

<Log FILE>
	Filename %L/microseconds-log-%Y-%m-%d
	Trace 4

See section 5.11 in the Radiator 3.17.1 reference manual.

A fairly simple way to improve things (usually) is to run twon  
instances of Radiator: one for authentication and the other for  

This is quite simple to do with one configuration file and parameters  
passed in on the command line.

Have you read the reference manual ("doc/ref.html")?
Have you searched the mailing list archive (www.open.com.au/archives/ 
Have you had a quick look on Google (www.google.com)?
Have you included a copy of your configuration file (no secrets),
together with a trace 4 debug showing what is happening?
Have you checked the RadiusExpert wiki:
