Accounting und system messages
There are two categories of syslog messages; accounting messages and system messages.

Accounting messages are generated from the subsystem acct (see subject-field of the biboAdmSyslogTable).

System messages are generated in dependency of  the license for every subsystem of the router (isdn, inet, x25, ipx, capi, ppp, bridge, config, snmp, x21, token, ether, radius, tapi, ospf, fr, modem).

Accounting Messages
Accounting messages are used to report accounting information.

It may bargain either for ISDN connections or for IP connections, which are handled via the router.

Accounting information can be identified via they keyword ACCT, ISDN messages via ISDN and IP messages via INET.

The messages can also be found in the biboAdmSyslogTable or via an syslog server in the LAN.

It is also possible to configure syslog server via the WAN, but this is not recommended because there may be the possibility of  high costs because of this connection (ISDN).

ISDN Accounting Messages
