  I understand that.  That is what the documentation for the "robust proxy accounting" server says.  And I wrote that documentation, so I understand how it works.

  Read sites-available/robust-proxy-accounting

  That is how that virtual server works.  If you did anything else, you didn't follow the documentation.

  That doesn't answer my question.

  So you configured the robust-proxy-account wrong.

  It looks like you have it ALWAYS writing to the detail file, and then proxying.  This is exactly the opposite of how that virtual server works.

  Instead, follow the documentation.  Have it proxy first, and then only write to the detail file if the home server is down.

  24K packets per second is a very high load system.  If a home server goes down for extended periods of time, then there will quickly be gigabytes of detail files written to disk.
