Radius Not Entering Modules Placed After Mod_Null (Doc ID 1057922.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 19, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management - Version: 7.3.1.0.0 - Release: 7.3.1
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Having the following configuration in Radius:

auth_terminator {
type=mod_null
action=ack
}

example_log {
type=mod_example
check {
}


Radius is not calling the custom module mod_example. The reason for sending response to network first, and then process requests, is that network doesn't need to wait till we process logic in mod_example, before getting the response.

That applies not only to custom modules. If the mod_proxy module is placed after mod_null, Radius is not calling mod_proxy. The need in this case is to forward a request to another Radius server using mod_proxy, so the expectation is to send a response before mod_proxy.

Why modules placed after mod_null in the module chain aren't called?
