You can configure
a monitor called a
accounting monitor to determine whether the Radius server used for
Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting (AAA) is delivering accounting
information as expected. The monitor is of type RADIUS_ACCOUNTING. The probe is
generated by a Perl script called nsbmradius.pl, which is located in the
/nsconfig/monitors/ directory. The script sends successive accounting request
probes to the RADIUS server. The probe is considered successful only if the
RADIUS accounting server responds with a packet whose Code field is set to 5,
which, according to RFC 2866, indicates an Accounting-Response packet.
When configuring a
RADIUS accounting monitor, you must specify a secret key. You can specify
optional parameters, each of which represents a RADIUS attribute, such as
Acct-Status-Type and Framed-IP-Address. For information about these attributes,
see RFC 2865, "Remote Authentication Dial In User Service (RADIUS)," and RFC
2866, "RADIUS Accounting."
