Rate limit issue
Posted: Mon Sep 18, 2006 10:37 pm
We have a hotspot up and running with radius AAA on remote usermanager.
Everything works smoothly in terms on logging in and out.(everything v2.9.30)
But...trying to assign a rate limit on traffic usage to a specific user on the usermanager interface, the feature doesn't seem to work..The limit get reached and there is no user disconnect.
What could we be missing?

I am confused by your question. The rate limit attribute is to limit download speed, not download amount.

Well I actually have a problem with the rate-limit,
I'm using Xtradius for AAA and reading the Mikrotik manual I found out the attribute Mikrotik-Rate-Limit:
Mikrotik-Rate-Limit - Datarate limitation for clients. Format is: rx-rate[/tx-rate] [rx-burst-rate[/tx-burst-rate] [rx-burst-threshold[/tx-burst-threshold]
so I did add it as a value in the xtradius dictionary:
ATTRIBUTE Mikrotik-Rate-Limit 1008 string in /etc/raddb/dictionary
For the AAA process I'm using some perl scripts and I use to print the value pairs such as Framed-IP-Address/Netmask and whatever. Of course I'm printing the Mikrotik-Rate-Limit too:
Mikrotik-Rate-Limit = 1024k (since I don't whant to specify bursts and I want rx = tx)
This seem not to work, looking in the Mikrotik syslog I can notice that the value pair Mikrotik-Rate-Limit is not recieved at all, when all the others are recieved correctly.
Xtradius logs the value pairs as:
Debug: Exec-Program-Wait: value-pairs: Framed-IP-Address = 10.0.3.2,Framed-IP-Netmask = 255.255.255.255,Mikrotik-Rate-Limit = 1024k
with no errors apparently...
In Mikrotik syslog there is nothing about Mikrotik-Rate-Limit.
What did I miss?
