The JunosE Software begins the collection of accounting statistics for terminated PPP sessions following, but not including, authentication acknowledgement from the E Series router. The acknowledgment is either a CHAP success or PAP acknowledgement packet. All subsequent traffic is counted up the point that PPP at the router terminates the subscriber's session. The statistics are reported in the following RADIUS attributes:
