Statistics Variables

 

Server statistics counters record the number of certain types of events. The LCI allows you to read these statistics to monitor the performance of your Steel-Belted Radius Carrier server.

Counter Statistics

Counter Statistics

The statistics counters can be accessed via the LCI by executing the following one line command:

The following sections illustrate the variables displayed for different settings of the stattype parameter.

Rate Statistics

Rate Statistics

Rate statistics are derived from existing counter statistics by taking time into consideration. Overall server rate values calculated for each of these counter statistics consist of the following:

  • Current rate—The rate measured over the most recent rate interval.

  • Average rate—The rate measured since the Steel-Belted Radius Carrier server was started or since the last time statistics were reset to zero.

  • Peak rate—The highest rate observed since the Steel-Belted Radius Carrier server was started or since the last time statistics were reset to zero.

Rate values calculated per NAD client and per Called-Station-ID consist of only current and peak rates.

Note

NAD client and Called-Station-ID specific rate statistics are calculated only if you set the EnhancedRateStats parameter in the radius.ini file to 1.

Additionally, there is a (read-only) time value used in calculations:

  • Rate statistics seconds-per interval—The duration (in seconds) of the interval over which the rate statistics are gathered.

To read overall server rate statistics from the LCI, you must set radiusstatus= statistics and stattype= rate. This results in output such as the following:

To read rate statistics per NAD client from the LCI, you must set radiusstatus=rate_stats_by_nas and also input the NAD name for which rate statistics should be displayed. This results in output such as the following:

To read rate statistics per Called-Station-ID from the LCI, you must set radiusstatus=stats_by_calledstationid and also input the string representing Called-Station-ID for which rate statistics should be displayed. This results in output such as the following:
