[strongSwan] How to determine how many connections are currently active?

Good morning,

What is the best way to determine how many connections are currently active
on the StrongSwan server?

Maybe there is a simpler way but I thought of one way. I’m using FreeRadius
with Mysql DB as storage.

There are three fields that capture the start (acctstarttime), ongoing
(acctupdatetime) and the end (acctstoptime) of a connection.

I could theoretically filter for all acctupdatetime that start from today
and have a acctstoptime that is null.  The count of these records would be
the approximate number of active connections to the server.

Is there a better way to achieve this or do you agree to this approach?

Many Thanks,
