     accton - enable/disable system accounting

     accton [file]

     With an argument naming an existing file, accton causes system accounting
     information for every process executed to be placed at the end of the
     file.  If no argument is given, accounting is turned off.

     accton is usually started at boot time, and can be enabled by setting the
     following in /etc/rc.conf.local:


     See rc(8) and rc.conf(8) for more information on the boot process and
     enabling daemons.

     Log rotation of the default accounting file, /var/account/acct, is
     performed by the daily(8) maintenance script.

     /var/account/acct	default accounting file

     lastcomm(1), acct(2), acct(5), daily(8), sa(8)

     The accton command has existed nearly forever, but this man page is new.
