  This is what external counters are for.  You can track the counter over time.

  The alternative is for FreeRADIUS to keep track of every possible statistic.  e.g. hourly, daily, weekly, etc.  That's what a database is for.

  The server also has a "start time", so you know when it restarts.  And, you know that the counters get reset back to zero when it restarts.
