-This page is a work in progress+====== The Radius Accounting tool ======
  
-====== ​Radius ​======+{{:​tools:​radius.png}} The Radius ​accounting tool is a NAV-tool that collects accounting-data from a [[http://​www.freeradius.org/​|Freeradius-server]] and makes them available to the user through a web-frontend. The goal is to make a more accessible and user-friendly interface to the accounting data instead of having to manually look through logfiles. The frontend is divided into three tabs where you can browse different sets of data from the radius-server.

 +  * If you have an [[http://​eduroam.org|eduroam]] wireless network all you wireless users will log in based on their radius credentials. The NAV radius accounting tool is useful for searching eduroam users.
 +  * If you use IEEE 802.1X in your wired network and thus requires users to log in to get access, the NAV radius accounting tool can track these users as well.

 +====== Known Issues ======
 +
 +We've had one report where the Freeradius-server crashes when it loses connection with the postgresql-database and can no longer push accounting-messages to it. The reason for this is currently unknown, but it seems to be connected with the ''​rlm_sql''​ and ''​rlm_sql_postgresql''​ modules for freeradius.
