[strongSwan] How to use sqlcounter to disconnect a user after reaching the daily quota?

Hello & Merry Christmas.

I have managed to enable accounting after all and it seems that the module
sqlcounter is loaded too.

Looking at the documentation here

The  rlm_counter  module  provides  a general framework to measure
total data transferred in a given period. This is very useful in a
'Prepaid Service' situation, where a user has paid for a  finite
amount  of  usage and should not be allowed to use more than that

This is perfect as I need exactly that.

It seems I have to change count_attribute to data usage in order to measure
the usage instead of time.

Nonetheless, I'm very confused how I'm supposed to utilise this module.

I can see the module is loaded when I run it as freeradius -X.

But how do I set it up to allow each user only 3 GB of data usage within a
Or even for testing purposes 100KB on daily basis?
When the month or day has passed, then the user should be allowed access

Which config file do I have to edit?

Many Thanks for your advice,
