1. Overview

   ACC_RADIUS module is used to account transaction information to RADIUS
   server. It binds to ACC module API and uses the same accounting
   mechanisms as for other backends.

   Therefore you need this module just to send accounting data to a RADIUS
   server - for more documentation regarding accounting, see the ACC
   readme.

2. Dependencies

   2.1. Kamailio Modules
   2.2. External Libraries or Applications

2.1. Kamailio Modules

   The module depends on the following modules (in the other words the
   listed modules must be loaded before this module):
     * acc - accounting module

2.2. External Libraries or Applications

   The following libraries or applications must be installed before
   running Kamailio with this module loaded:
     * radiusclient-ng 0.5.0 or higher, freeradius-client
       https://github.com/FreeRADIUS/freeradius-client/ or radcli
       http://radcli.github.io/radcli/.
     * freeradius-client library can be used after setting FREERADIUS
       variable in source code with 'export FREERADIUS=1' before compile.
     * radcli library can be used after setting RADCLI variable in source
       code with 'export RADCLI=1' before compile.

3. Parameters

   3.1. radius_config (string)
   3.2. radius_flag (integer)
   3.3. radius_missed_flag (integer)
   3.4. service_type (integer)
   3.5. radius_extra (string)
   3.6. rad_time_mode(integer)

3.1. radius_config (string)

   This parameter is radius specific. Path to radius client configuration
   file, set the referred config file correctly and specify there address
   of server, shared secret (should equal that in
   /usr/local/etc/raddb/clients for freeRadius servers) and dictionary,
   see etc for an example of config file and dictionary.

   If the parameter is set to empty string, the RADIUS accounting support
   will be disabled (even if compiled).

   Default value is “NULL”.

   Example 1.1. radius_config example
...
modparam("acc_radius", "radius_config", "/etc/radiusclient/radiusclient.conf")
...

3.2. radius_flag (integer)

   Request flag which needs to be set to account a transaction -- RADIUS
   specific.

   Default value is not-set (no flag).

   Example 1.2. radius_flag example
...
modparam("acc_radius", "radius_flag", 2)
...

3.3. radius_missed_flag (integer)

   Request flag which needs to be set to account missed calls -- RADIUS
   specific.

   Default value is not-set (no flag).

   Example 1.3. radius_missed_flag example
...
modparam("acc_radius", "radius_missed_flag", 3)
...

3.4. service_type (integer)

   Radius service type used for accounting.

   Default value is 15 (SIP).

   Example 1.4. service_type example
...
modparam("acc_radius", "service_type", 16)
...

3.5. radius_extra (string)

   Extra values to be logged via RADIUS - RADIUS specific.

   Default value is NULL.

   Example 1.5. radius_extra example
...
modparam("acc_radius", "radius_extra", "via=$hdr(Via[*]); email=$avp(s:email)")
...

3.6. rad_time_mode(integer)

   Radius Event-Timestamp for accounting.

   Values can be:
     * 0 - (default), format is only unix timestamp for Event-Timestamp
       (For example: 1445590624)
     * 1 - format is unix timestamp with microseconds in Addition, it
       needs to change Event-Timestamp attribute type in dictionary to
       string both radius server and client (For example:
       1445590624.377372)

   Default value is 0 (Unix timestamp).

   Example 1.6. rad_time_mode example
...
modparam("acc_radius", "rad_time_mode", 1)
...

4. Functions

   4.1. acc_rad_request(comment)

4.1.  acc_rad_request(comment)

   Like acc_log_request of acc module, acc_rad_request reports on a SIP
   request event. It reports to radius server as configured in
   “radius_config”.

   Meaning of the parameters is as follows:
     * comment - Comment to be appended. The first token can be a SIP
       response code that it is wanted to be interpreted as event type
       (e.g., using 200 means the transaction is considered successfully
       responded).

   This function can be used from REQUEST_ROUTE, FAILURE_ROUTE.

   Example 1.7. acc_rad_request usage
...
acc_rad_request("Some comment");
...
# write record as when the transaction was responded with a 200 code
acc_rad_request("200 From Config");
...
