I just implemented this. I set my rule for less than 2 and I can get two devices on. I setup the DB and made a role mapping similiar to the above and added this as an Additional authorization sources from which to fetch role-mapping attribute but I can still get two devices on using the same credentials. Where can I check to see what may be going wrong?

to quickly add, the Authorization:Active_Session_Count_Tracker:session_count 0 shows up in the access tracker.



So what's the difference between this method and the one mentioned here?

Which one is better to use?

I tried the Insight db method and found that the query returns the correct value after few minutes.



Hi Raj,

The current method which you are using is good, please follow the same.

The method in this article will query the Log database and the one which you are using will query the Insight database. Insight DB is better place to fetch the active/simultaneous session details.

Note: Insight or Log database will need the RADIUS accounting stop packet from the controller/switch for the clients that are no longer in the network to provide the correct value.
