CAR 4.0 and accounting on/off messages (session release).

Hi All,

We recently had an issue with the accounting on/off messages send from a client. We are using a modified Version of ParseAAASRealm and because accounting on/off messages include no user-name the CAR didn't know (no default service defined) how to response. We made a simple modification to check if Acct-Type is either Accounting-on or off to assign it to a default Accounting Service else continue with the ParseAAASRealm Script.

Any ideas what is the logic behind Cisco's implementation of Accounting on/ described under Session/Identity Tracking and Caching Features:

- Automatic session release when accounting on/off is detected (system accounting)?

Also currently CAR is releasing Sessions based on NAS-Identity but we would like to chane it to NAS-IP-Address if possible.

RADIUS accounting is the process of collecting and storing the information contained in Accounting Start and Accounting Stop messages. Refer the following URL

Re: CAR 4.0 and accounting on/off messages (session release).

I was more interested on the accounting-on and accounting-off messages and the internal process of CAR on how it handles these messages.
