Log file format

John Horne
Hello,

I can see in our 'radius.log' file entries such as:

======
Wed Sep 11 17:33:27 2019 : Auth: (1746809) Login OK: [snipped]
Wed Sep 11 17:33:28 2019 : Auth: (1746811) Login incorrect (Home Server says
so): [snipped]
======

My question is what are the numbers 1746809 and 1746811?

They are too small to be an epoch time, and as a number of seconds don't
correspond to the server uptime.


Thanks,

John.

  It's a packet number.  Having a consistent packet number ensures that log messages can be correctly grouped together.
