      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

		     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.

      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.
