To configure this feature, you should understand the following concepts:

Overview of SSG

SSG Suppression of Unused Accounting Records

Overview of SSG

Service Selection Gateway (SSG) is a switching solution for service providers who offer intranet, extranet, and Internet connections to subscribers using broadband access technology such as digital subscriber lines (DSL), cable modems, or wireless to allow simultaneous access to network services.

SSG works in conjunction with the Cisco Service Selection Dashboard (SSD) or its successor product, the Cisco Subscriber Edge Services Manager (SESM). Together with the SESM or SSD, SSG provides subscriber authentication, service selection, and service connection capabilities to subscribers of Internet services. Subscribers interact with an SESM or SSD web application using a standard Internet browser.

SSG Suppression of Unused Accounting Records

The SSG Suppression of Unused Accounting Records feature allows you to turn off unneeded SSG accounting. You can configure SSG to send per-host accounting records only, per-service accounting records only, or per-host and per-service accounting records. You can also disable SSG accounting so that no accounting records are sent.

How to Configure SSG Suppression of Unused Accounting Records

This section contains the following procedures:

Configuring Per-Service Accounting in a RADIUS Service Profile

Configuring SSG Accounting Per-Host

Configuring SSG Accounting Per-Service

Configuring Per-Service Accounting in a RADIUS Service Profile

The RADIUS service profile L attribute can be used to enable or disable SSG connection accounting in a service profile.

If SSG accounting is enabled on a router with the ssg accounting command, the accounting parameters configured in a service profile take precedence over the accounting parameters configured with the ssg accounting command. For example, if both per-host and per-service accounting are configured by using the ssg accounting command on the router, but in a service profile accounting is disabled, then per-service accounting records will not be sent for that service.

If no ssg accounting is configured on the router, accounting records will not be sent, even if accounting is enabled in a service profile.

To enable or disable SSG connection accounting, configure "enable" or "disable" after the interval configuration, as in the following example of a service profile configuration:

Use r= proxy_1 {
9, 251 = `R122.22.0.0; 255.255.0.0'
9, 251 = `L0;disable'
}
