How to enable detailed RADIUS accounting packet logging

AMP can be configured to do detailed logging of the RADIUS accounting packets it receives. To do so AMP creates a directory for that device under:

/var/log/radius/radacct/


To enable this feature please do the following:

1. Using nano (or your favorite text editor), edit the file:

/etc/raddb/radiusd.conf 

Search on "accounting {" where you will find the following text:

accounting {
#
# Create a 'detail'ed log of the packets.
# Note that accounting requests which are proxied
# are also logged in the detail file.
# detail

2. To enable detailed logging, un-comment the last line above by removing the # from in front of detail. It should look like this after editing:

accounting {
#
# Create a 'detail'ed log of the packets.
# Note that accounting requests which are proxied
# are also logged in the detail file.
detail

3. Save the file and run the following command to restart radiusd:

service radiusd restart
