 acctcms(1M)                                                     acctcms(1M)

 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      acctcms - command summary from per-process accounting records

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
      /usr/sbin/acct/acctcms [options] files

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      acctcms reads one or more files, normally in the form described in
      acct(4).  It adds all records for processes that executed
      identically-named commands, sorts them, and writes them to the
      standard output, normally using an internal summary format.

    Options    [Toc]    [Back]
      acctcms recognizes the following options:

           -a      Print output in ASCII rather than in the internal summary
                   format.  The output includes command name, number of
                   times executed, total kcore-minutes, total CPU minutes,
                   total real minutes, mean size (in K), mean CPU minutes
                   per invocation, ``hog factor'', characters transferred,
                   and blocks read and written, as in acctcom(1M).  Output
                   is normally sorted by total kcore-minutes.

           -c      Sort by total CPU time, rather than total kcore-minutes.

           -j      Combine all commands invoked only once under ***other.

           -n      Sort by number of command invocations.

           -s      Any file names encountered hereafter are already in
                   internal summary format.

           -t      Process all records as total accounting records.  The
                   default internal summary format splits each field into
                   prime- and non-prime-time parts.  This option combines
                   the prime and non-prime time parts into a single field
                   that is the total of both, and provides upward
                   compatibility with old (i.e., UNIX System V) style
                   acctcms internal summary format records.

      The following options can be used only with the -a option.

           -p      Output a prime-time-only command summary.

           -o      Output a non-prime- (offshift) time only command summary.

      When -p and -o are used together, a combination prime and non-prime
      time report is produced.  All the output summaries are total usage
      except number of times executed, CPU minutes, and real minutes which
      are split into prime and non-prime.

 EXAMPLES    [Toc]    [Back]
      A typical sequence for performing daily command accounting and for
      maintaining a running total is:
           acctcms file ... >today
           cp total previoustotal
           acctcms -s today previoustotal >total
           acctcms -a -s today

 WARNINGS    [Toc]    [Back]
      Unpredictable output results if -t is used on new-style internalsummary-format
 files, or if it is not used with old style internal
      summary format files.

      The process mean memory size may overflow for values greater than
