     acctprc, acctprc1, acctprc2 - process accounting


     /usr/lib/acct/acctprc1 [ctmp]


     acctprc reads the standard input and converts  it  to  total
     accounting  records (see the tacct record in acct.h(3HEAD)).
     acctprc divides CPU time into prime time and non-prime  time
     and  determines  mean memory size (in memory segment units).
     acctprc then summarizes the tacct records, according to user
     IDs, and adds login names corresponding to the user IDs. The
     summarized records are then written to the standard  output.
     acctprc1 reads input in the form described by acct.h(3HEAD),
     adds login names corresponding to user IDs, then writes  for
     each process an ASCII line giving user ID, login name, prime
     CPU time (tics), non-prime CPU time (tics), and mean  memory
     size (in memory segment units).  If ctmp is given, it should
     contain a list of login sessions sorted by user ID and login
     name.   If this file is not supplied, it obtains login names
     from the password file, just as acctprc does.  The  informa-
     tion  in  ctmp  helps it distinguish between different login
     names that share the same user ID.

     From the standard input, acctprc2 reads records in the  form
     written  by  acctprc1,  summarizes them according to user ID
     and name, then writes the sorted summaries to  the  standard
     output as total accounting records.

     Example 1: Examples of acctprc.

     The acctprc command is typically used as shown below:

     example% acctprc < /var/adm/pacct > ptacct

     The acctprc1 and acctprc2s commands are  typically  used  as
     shown below:

     example% acctprc1 ctmp </var/adm/pacct
     example% acctprc2 > ptacct

     /etc/passwd     system password file

     See attributes(5) for descriptions of the  following  attri-

    |       ATTRIBUTE TYPE        |       ATTRIBUTE VALUE       |
    | Availability                | SUNWaccu                    |

     acctcom(1),     acct(1M),     acctcms(1M),      acctcon(1M),
     acctmerg(1M),  acctsh(1M), cron(1M), fwtmp(1M), runacct(1M),
     acct(2), acct.h(3HEAD), utmpx(4), attributes(5)

     Although it is possible for acctprc1  to  distinguish  among
     login names that share user IDs for commands run from a com-
     mand line, it is difficult for acctprc1 to  make  this  dis-
     tinction  for  commands invoked in other ways. A command run
     from cron(1M) is an example of  where  acctprc1  might  have
     difficulty.  A more precise conversion can be done using the
     acctwtmp program in acct(1M). acctprc does  not  distinguish
     between users with identical user IDs.

     A memory segment of the mean memory size is a unit of  meas-
     ure for the number of bytes in a logical memory segment on a
     particular processor.

     During  a  single  invocation  of  any  given  command,  the
     acctprc,  acctprc1, and acctprc2 commands can process a max-
     imum of

       o  6000 distinct sessions

       o  1000 distinct terminal lines

       o  2000 distinct login names

     If at some point the actual number of any one of these items
     exceeds the maximum, the command will not succeed.
