9.5. Accounting log file Previous topic Parent topic Child topic Next topic

The accounting log file is used to store the details of every Accounting-Request received for a Realm if the AcctLogFileName parameter is defined for the Realm. It is an ASCII text file with each entry occupying one or more lines and followed by a blank line. The log file format is identical to the format used by Livingston and other RADIUS servers. The first line gives the date and time the request was received by the server. The subsequent lines give the values for every attribute in the request. Every Accounting-Request, regardless of Acct-Status-Type is stored in the log file.
