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



NAME
       acctmerg - merge or add total accounting files

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/lib/acct/acctmerg [ -aiptuv ] [ filename...  ]

DESCRIPTION
       acctmerg  reads its standard input and up to nine additional files, all
       in the tacct format (see acct(5)) or  an  ASCII  version  thereof.   It
       merges  these inputs by adding records whose keys (normally user ID and
       name) are identical, and expects the inputs to be sorted on those keys.

OPTIONS
       -a     Produce output in ASCII version of tacct.

       -i     Input files are in ASCII version of tacct.

       -p     Print input with no processing.

       -t     Produce a single record that totals all input.

       -u     Summarize by user ID, rather than user ID and name.

       -v     Produce output in verbose ASCII format, with more precise  nota-
              tion for floating point numbers.

EXAMPLES
       The  following sequence is useful for making "repairs" to any file kept
       in this format:

              acctmerg -v <&lt;filename1 >&gt;filename2
                   edit file2 as desired ...
              acctmerg -i <&lt;filename2 >&gt;filename1
