As a side note, RadiusNT 2.5 is also SNMP capable, and you can use
MRTG to graph things like:

Number of Auth/Acct requests
Number of Bas Auth Reqs
Number of Dup Acct Requests
and many more.

I use to do three graphs:

1) Total Authentication Requests on line 1, Total Accounting Requests on
line 2
2) Good Authentication Requests on line 1, Bad Authentication Requests
on line 2
3) Good Accounting Requests on line 1, Duplicate Accounting Requests on
line 2
