The radius server steps out of the way once authentication and authorization
is complete, nor does it have the ability to disconnect a user from a NAS.
You need to have the NAS disconnect the user itself when a threshold is
reached. This is accomplished by returning a vendor specific attribute
specifying the limit for the session which the NAS then maintains. Once the
limit on the NAS is reached the NAS terminates the session. You'll have to
check your NAS documentation for a traffic limiting parameter. In the other
common case of disconnect after a time duration it's handled by computing
the session length during authorization and returning attribute 194 with the
maximum number of seconds for the connection. This attribute is understood
by comon NAS devices and is known variously as Ascend-Maximum-Time,
or Lucent-Maximum-Time. You'll need to apply the same logic for data volume.
