IOS task_id's

Unanswered Question
May 3rd, 2007

When looking at TACACS+ session and command accounting from various IOS devices its hard make any sense of the values you see in the task_id attribute.

I always thought it was analagous to the RADIUS session-id attribute.. but when you look it isnt.

Sometimes you'll see a session start/stop with the same task-id - great. But the commands accounted in-between dont always have the same task-id. Sometimes they increment from the start task-id and sometimes from the start task-id+n.

The result is they seem to be totally unreliable This is a shame as its the most obvious method to associate commands and the session they ran in.

Can any IOS experts clarify this.. Obvisouly have trawled and google but no luck.
