show dot1x accounting attribute



Display the RADIUS accounting attributes sent by the switch, operating as the network access server (NAS), to the RADIUS accounting server. RADIUS accounting attributes convey information that is used to account for a service provided to an authenticated user. The user session statistics are recorded by the accounting server in an accounting log file.

RADIUS accounting attributes are included in Accounting-Request messages sent from the switch to the accounting server. Attribute information is created only if the data for the attribute is available.
