I am not using any database server (MySQL etc.) on Radius server, i am just
using the radacct log file. How can i send the query to radius server?

> Have the NAS use RADIUS to send the accounting data to the server.

Yes the NAS sends the Accounting start request at the time of call start &
Accounting stop request at call stop. Radacct log is used by billing
software to generate the bills.
