what and how should i use counter on freeradius in this config (login-time)

problem : it's not giving a "Session-Timeout"

I'm installed free radius and connect it to squid and put this config on users file it work's fine with squid but it's not giving a "Session-Timeout" , after searching a lot i found that i should use a counter but i couldn't understand what kind of counter should i use(dayly, monthy, ...) an how ?
I'm really beginner on freeradius

"alice" Cleartext-Password := "passme", login-time := "Sa0200-0209"
        Reply-Message = "Hello, %{User-Name}"

i changed the configuration to somthing different its not working . i think i miss somthing here :

problem : daily counter not working
i have squid connected to freeradius and
i did this config on users file of freeradius
"alice" Cleartext-Password := "passme", Max-Daily-Session :="100"
        Reply-Message = "Hello, %{User-Name}"
and uncomment daily in accounting and authorize section of sites-enabled/default file of freeradius and uncommented the daily in instantiate section of radiusd.conf and added this to moduls/counter
counter daily {
        filename = ${db_dir}/db.daily
        key = User-Name
        count-attribute = Acct-Session-Time
        reset = daily
        counter-name = Daily-Session-Time
        check-name = Max-Daily-Session
        reply-name = Session-Timeout
        allowed-servicetype = Framed-User
        cache-size = 5000
        return-attribute = Session-Timeout
but after 100 second the user doesn't disconnect and noting wrote in output of radius -X command
