acctcms - command summary from process accounting records
/usr/lib/acct/acctcms [-a [-o] [-p]] [-c] [-j] [-n] [-s]
acctcms reads one or more filenames, normally in the
form described in acct.h(3HEAD). 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.
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(1)
Output is normally sorted by total kcore-minutes.
Use the following options only with the -a option:
Output a (non-prime) offshift-time-only command
Output a prime-time-only command summary.
When -o and -p are used together, a combination
prime-time 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.
Sort by total CPU time, rather than total
Combine all commands invoked only once under
Sort by number of command invocations.
Any file names encountered hereafter are already in
internal summary format.
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 style acctcms internal summary format
Example 1 Using the acctcms command.
A typical sequence for performing daily command accounting and for
maintaining a running total is:
example% acctcms filename ... > today
example% cp total previoustotal
example% acctcms -s today previoustotal > total
example% acctcms -a -s today
acctcom(1), acct(2), acct.h(3HEAD),
utmpx(5), attributes(7), acct(8), acctcon(8),
acctmerg(8), acctprc(8), acctsh(8), fwtmp(8),
Unpredictable output results if -t is used on new style
internal summary format files, or if it is not used with old style internal
summary format files.
