Look into something like ipSwitch's WhatsUp Gold. It can monitor your
RADIUS servers and tell you about the outage. Some people cron a
"net start radius" every so often to restart it, just in case.
Make sure you disable your Dr. Watson's visual notification, or you'll
have to be there (defeats the purpose) for it to restart.

Looking at the recent garbage thread, RadiusNT is handing fairly long
garbage names w/out crashing. Let me know if you find any more details
on this.
