Configuring Accounting for Wireless Network Users 505
(For details about display accounting statistics output, see the Wireless
LAN Switch and Controller Command Reference. For information about
accounting update records, see “Viewing Roaming Accounting Records”
on page 505. To configure accounting on a RADIUS server, see the
documentation for your RADIUS server.)
To view local accounting records, type the following command:
WX1200# display accounting statistics
During roaming, accounting is treated as a continuation of an existing
session, rather than a new session. The following sample output shows a
wireless user roaming from one WX switch to another WX switch.
From the accounting records, you can determine the user’s activities by
viewing the Acct-Status-Type, which varies from START to UPDATE to
STOP, and the Called-Station-Id, which is the MAC address of the MAP
through which the wireless user accessed the network. The
Acct-Multi-Session-Id is guaranteed to be globally unique for the client.
By entering display accounting statistics commands on each WX
switch involved in the roaming, you can determine the user’s movements
between WX switches when accounting is configured locally.
The user started on WX1200-0013:
WX1200-0013# display accounting statistics
May 21 17:01:32
The user roamed to WX1200-0017.
WX1200-0017# display accounting statistics
