 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 during the night.

      ckpacct        Should be initiated via cron(1M).  It periodically
                     checks 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 file system falls below 500, ckpacct
                     automatically turns off the collection of process
                     accounting records via the off argument to turnacct.
                     When at least this number of blocks is restored, the
                     accounting will be activated again.  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 will do disk
                     accounting on the special files in /etc/fstab.  If the
                     -o flag is used, it does a slower version of disk

 acctsh(1M)                                                       acctsh(1M)

                     accounting by login directory.  files specifies the one
                     or more filesystem names where disk accounting is to be
                     done.  If files is used, disk accounting will be done
                     on these filesystems only.  If the -o flag is used,
                     files should be mount points of mounted filesystem.  If
                     omitted, they should be the special file names of
                     mountable filesystems.

      lastlogin      Invoked by runacct to update /var/adm/acct/sum/loginlog
                     which shows the last date on which each user logged in
                     (see runacct(1M)).

      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 through 12).  This default is useful if
                     monacct is to executed via cron on the first day of
                     each month.  monacct creates summary files in
                     /var/adm/acct/fiscal and restarts summary files in

      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 created by acctcon1 (see

      prdaily        Invoked by runacct (see runacct(1M)) to format a report
                     of the previous day's accounting data.  The report
                     resides in /var/adm/acct/sum/rprtmmdd where mmdd is the
                     month and day of the report.  The current daily
                     accounting reports may 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 specifed 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 current day's accounting
                     data only.

      prtacct        Can be used to format and print any total accounting
                     (tacct) file.

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

 acctsh(1M)                                                       acctsh(1M)

      startup        Should be called by system startup scripts to turn the
                     accounting on whenever the system is brought up.

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