ACCTCMS(8)                  System Manager's Manual                 ACCTCMS(8)

       acctcms - command summary from per-process accounting records

       /usr/lib/acct/acctcms [ -cjnst ] filename...

       /usr/lib/acct/acctcms [ -a [ po ] [ cjnstpo ] filename...

       acctcms  reads one or more filenames, normally in the form described in
       acct(5).  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.

       -a     Print output in ASCII rather than in the internal  summary  for-
              mat.   The  output  includes  command name, number of times exe-
              cuted, total kcore-minutes, total CPU minutes, total  real  min-
              utes,  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-min-

       -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 processes.

       -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.

       The following options may 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 will be total usage
       except number of times executed, CPU minutes, and  real  minutes  which
       will be split into prime and non-prime.

       A  typical  sequence  for  performing  daily command accounting and for
       maintaining a running total is:

              acctcms file ... >>today
              cp total previoustotal
              acctcms -s today previoustotal >>total
              acctcms -a -s today

       acctcom(1), acct(2V), acct(5),  utmp(5V),  acct(8),  acctcon(8),  acct-
       merg(8), acctprc(8), acctsh(8), fwtmp(8), runacct(8)

       Unpredictable  output  results if -t is used on new style internal sum-
       mary format files, or if it is not used with old style internal summary
       format files.
