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(3HEAD). It adds all records for processes
that executed identically named commands, sorts them, and
writes them to the standard output, normally using an inter-
nal summary format.
-a Print output in ASCII rather than in the internal sum-
mary 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-
Use the following options only with the -a option:
-o Output a (non-prime) offshift-time-only command sum-
-p 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 sum-
maries are total usage except number of times executed, CPU
minutes, and real minutes, which are split into prime and
-c Sort by total CPU time, rather than total kcore-
-j Combine all commands invoked only once under
-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 compa-
tibility with old style acctcms internal summary for-
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

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.
