I wanted to test this scenario:
This is a sample configuration for robust proxy accounting. Accounting
packets are proxied, OR logged locally if all home servers are down.  When
the home servers come back up, the accounting packets are forwarded.

In my case freeradius detects that home server is down. I assume that
freeradius will log accounting packet locally (via detail module) to the
disk. I have checked /app_log/radius/ggsn/radacct/detail file, but
accounting packet was not written. Therefore i sent debug output.
