FreeRADIUS-Database version 0.0.2 ======================= INSTALLATION To install this module type the following: perl Makefile.PL # manual intervention is required during this step to # provide the user the ability to specify alternate # directory information make make test make install # if you want to install the utilities make scripts NOTES - This distribution comes with a few management scripts that automate radacct grouping and aggregation tasks that aid in both database maintenance and UBB-type tasks - The configuration file will be installed into the directory you specified during 'perl Makefile.PL' stage, or /usr/local/etc by default. You will need to rename the configuration file from freeradius_database.conf-dist to freeradius_database.conf, and then set the config variables to suit your needs. The configuration file has its own documentation. See perldoc FreeRADIUS::freeradius_database.conf - Currently, only MySQL has been used in production. The tests use a dedicated SQLite database. DATABASE SCHEMA The daily and monthly aggregation routines require their own database tables, currently within the actual RADIUS database, and are for MySQL only. The schema files are located in src/schema. To implement: mysql -u user -p [-h host] radius_db < src/schema/aggregate_daily.sql mysql -u user -p [-h host] radius_db < src/schema/aggregate_monthly.sql ... you'd be well advised to make a backup of your RADIUS database first. ACCOMPANYING SCRIPTS There are a few accompanying scripts with this module so you can get up and running as soon as possible. Refer to the documentation of these scripts to get a full understanding of their purpose and usage: perldoc aggregate_daily perldoc aggregate_monthly perldoc update_nas_ip_address perldoc archive_radacct aggregate_daily, aggregate_monthly, and archive_radacct are designed to be run from cron. aggregate_daily should be run after midnight, with aggregate_monthly following the completion of the daily script. It may be prudent to chain the commands into a single cron entry to ensure that daily completes prior to the monthly script running. DEPENDENCIES See the Makefile.PL file.
