acct - execution accounting file
The kernel maintains an accounting information structure for all processes.
If a process terminates, and accounting is enabled, the kernel
calls the acct(2) function to prepare, and then append, a record for
this process to the accounting file. The accounting structure struct
acct is also described in the file /usr/include/linux/acct.h.
