      acctcms - command summary from per-process accounting records

      /usr/sbin/acct/acctcms [options] files

      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.

      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.

      A typical sequence for performing daily command accounting and for
      maintaining a running total is:
	   acctcms file ... >&gt&gt>today
	   cp total previoustotal
	   acctcms -s today previoustotal >&gt&gt>total
	   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.
