  That's not accounting data.  That's just logging information.  You
can update FreeRADIUS to log that, too.  See src/main/auth.c

  'total 0, holding 0'?  What does that mean?

  I've never understood Merit's logs.

  I have no idea what that means.

  I have no idea what that log file format is.  The ':0' and ':1'
stuff looks like nonsense to me.

  I'd suggest re-phrasing your requirements as "what information do
you need to have logged", and ignore the existing format.  Then, write
a Perl script that reads the "detail" file, and produces whatever data
you want.
