The Security Console displays statistics for the RSA RADIUS clients in RSA Authentication Manager. The statistics contain authentication and accounting data for RADIUS clients.
The Security Console begins tracking the statistics after an administrator starts the RADIUS server that is associated with a RADIUS client. When an administrator restarts the RADIUS server, the Security Console clears the statistics and begins the tracking again. You can record statistics in RADIUS log files.
When displaying RADIUS client statistics, the Security Console allows you to choose from the following four types:
Authentication confirms that valid users request network services. Authentication statistics include the following.
Authentication Request Diagnostics
Number of duplicate messages sent by the client to its associated RADIUS server.
Number of messages with invalid accounting secrets sent by the client to its associated RADIUS server.
Number of challenges sent by the client to its associated RADIUS server.
Number of invalid RADIUS requests made by this RADIUS client. For example, the client is sending incorrectly formed packets to the RADIUS server because there is a configuration error or the device does not conform to the RADIUS standard.
Number of invalid accounting types sent by the client to its associated RADIUS server. For example, the client sends a RADIUS packet on the server accounting port that is not a RADIUS Accounting-Request packet.
Number of RADIUS authentication packets dropped by the RADIUS client because it received more packets than it could handle.
When users authenticate, RADIUS clients send attributes for each user authentication attempt. RADIUS servers collect this information and can save as much or as little as needed for billing or monitoring purposes. The server writes the information to a comma-delimited file suitable for inclusion in a spreadsheet or other application.
RADIUS log files record administrator actions including authentications and any changes made using the Security Console or Operations Console.
The following table describes the files that establish settings for accounting and logging. For more information on modifying configuration files, see the RSA Authentication Manager RADIUS Reference Guide.
Controls how RADIUS accounting attributes are logged.
Controls (among other things) the types of messages that RADIUS records in the server log file and the location of the log directory.
