user session & accounting mgmt

I am newbie and I have couple of questions in the free radius.


How do we maintain the session time in free radius?

For example, a given user the session time is configured for 1 hour.

After 1 hour, radius server should initiate "Session disconnect message" for the user to the NAS.

I understand that, Freeradius does support "session disconnect message", but we can achieve this with radclient utility.


Here my problem is, how the session timeout is identified to trigger this disconnect message?

Please help.

2) where freeradius logs the  accounting information?  I have not configured the mysql. Does freeradius supports flat file for storing accounting records.?
