By default GNU Radius supports three types of accounting. Any additional accounting methods can be defined using extension mechanisms.
The accounting methods are applied to a request in a following sequence:
Any method can be enabled or disabled. Thus, you can even disable them all, thereby disabling accounting altogether.
Notice, that the multiple login checking scheme relies on
accounting being enabled. By default it uses system accounting, but
can also be configured to use sql accounting. So, if you
disable system accounting and still wish to use reliable multiple login
checking, make sure you configure
radiusd to use sql
for this purpose. See section Multiple Login Checking, for the detailed information
about the subject.
If any accounting type in this sequence fails, the accounting is deemed to fail and all subsequent methods are not invoked.
