IAS Accounting Clients Object

The IAS Accounting Clients performance object is installed by the Internet Authentication Service (IAS). IAS uses the Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) protocol to perform remote authentication. IAS performance objects report activity for servers or clients, including user authentication, authorization, and accounting (usage).

When selecting counters for this object, note that each client is a separate instance.

Bad Authenticators/sec Shows the rate, in seconds, at which packets that contained invalid Signature attributes were received. PERF_COUNTER_COUNTER

Dropped Packets/sec Shows the rate in seconds at which incoming packets were silently discarded for a reason other than being malformed, bad authenticators, or unknown types. PERF_COUNTER_COUNTER
Duplicate Accounting-Requests Shows the number of duplicate RADIUS Accounting-Request packets received from this client. PERF_COUNTER_RAWCOUNT
Duplicate Accounting-Requests/sec Shows the rate, in seconds, at which duplicate RADIUS Accounting-Request packets were received from this client. PERF_COUNTER_COUNTER
Malformed Packets Shows the number of malformed packets received. Bad authenticators or unknown types are not included. PERF_COUNTER_RAWCOUNT
Malformed Packets/sec Shows the rate, in seconds, at which malformed packets were received. PERF_COUNTER_COUNTER
No Record Shows the number of RADIUS Accounting-Request packets that were received and responded to but not recorded. PERF_COUNTER_RAWCOUNT
No Record/sec Shows the rate, in seconds, at which RADIUS Accounting-Request packets were received and responded to but not recorded. PERF_COUNTER_COUNTER
