Since i/we didn't receive any answer on secureshell at I
like to ask this question to you.

What's your opinion on this topic?

Thanks! Miro

Betreff: OpenSSH traffic accounting ...

There exist patches for OpenSSH that allow it to perform per user

Further, new releases increasingly are being met with the "it still
doesn't do per user traffic accounting ?" comment.

( )

Can someone tell me why this is not implemented ?  Is it a philosophical
question, or is it just low priority ?  Perhaps the patches just weren't
good ones and nobody wants to redo them ?

All comments appreciated.

This topic is also very important to me and I wanted to ask for it...
For commercial usage/applications this would be a prerequisite.

Would be great to have this feature :-)
