DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     chargefee can be invoked to charge	a number of units to login-name.  A
     record is written to /var/adm/fee,	to be merged with other	accounting
     records by	runacct.

     ckpacct should be initiated via cron(1M) to periodically check the	size
     of	/var/adm/pacct.	 If the	size exceeds blocks, 1000 by default, turnacct
     is	invoked	with argument switch.  If the number of	free disk blocks in
     the /var filesystem falls below 500, ckpacct automatically	turns off the
     collection	of process accounting records via the off argument to
     turnacct.	When at	least 500 blocks are restored, the accounting is
     activated again on	the next invocation of ckpacct.	 This feature is
     sensitive to the frequency	at which ckpacct is executed, usually by cron.

     dodisk should be invoked by cron to perform the disk accounting
     functions.	 By default, it	uses diskusg to	do accounting on efs and xfs
     filesystems in /etc/fstab.	 Note that dodisk reports accounting
     information in /var/adm/dtmp.  Further note that when dodisk uses
     /etc/fstab, it skips remote resources.  If	the -o flag is used, it	uses
     acctdusg (see acct(1M)) to	do a slower version of disk accounting by
     login directory for all filesystems.  files specifies the one or more
     filesystem	names where disk accounting is to be done.  If files are used,
     disk accounting is	done on	these filesystems only.	 If the	-o flag	is
     used, files should	be mount points	of mounted filesystems.	 If the	-o
     option is omitted,	files should be	the special filenames of mountable

     lastlogin is invoked by runacct to	update /var/adm/acct/sum/loginlog,
     which shows the last date on which	each person logged in.

     monacct should be invoked once each month or each accounting period.
     number indicates which month or period it is.  If number is not given, it
     defaults to the current month (01-12).  This default is useful if monacct

     is	to execute via cron(1M)	on the first day of each month.	 monacct
     creates summary files in /var/adm/acct/fiscal and restarts	the summary
     files in /var/adm/acct/sum.

     nulladm creates file with mode 664	and ensures that owner and group are
     adm.  It is called	by various accounting shell procedures.

     prctmp can	be used	to print the session record file (normally
     /var/adm/acct/nite/ctmp is	created	by acctcon1 (see acctcon(1M)).

     prdaily is	invoked	by runacct to format a report of the previous day's
     accounting	data.  The report resides in /var/adm/acct/sum/rprt/mmdd where
     mmdd is the month and day of the report.  The current daily accounting
     reports can be printed by typing prdaily.	Previous days' accounting
     reports can be printed by using the mmdd option and specifying the	exact
     report date desired.  The -l flag prints a	report of exceptional usage by
     login ID for the specified	date.  Previous	daily reports are cleaned up
     and therefore inaccessible	after each invocation of monacct.  The -c flag
     prints a report of	exceptional resource usage by command and can be used
     on	the current day's accounting data only.

     prtacct can be used to format and print any total accounting (tacct)

     shutacct is invoked during	a system shutdown to turn process accounting
     off and append a reason record to /var/adm/wtmp.

     startup can be invoked when the system is brought to a multiuser state to
     turn process accounting on.

     turnacct is an interface to accton	(see acct(1M)) to turn process
     accounting	on or off.  The	switch argument	moves the current
     /var/adm/pacct to the next	free name in /var/adm/pacctincr	(where incr is
     a number starting with 1 and incrementing by one for each additional
     pacct file), then turns accounting	back on	again.	This procedure is
     called by ckpacct and thus	can be taken care of by	the cron and used to
     keep pacct	to a reasonable	size.  shutacct	uses turnacct to stop process
     accounting.  startup uses turnacct	to start process accounting.
