acctprc, acctprc1, acctprc2 - process accounting
reads input in the form described by acct(4), adds login names corre‐
sponding 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 is given, it is
expected to contain a list of login sessions in the form described in
acctcon(1M), sorted by user ID and login name. If this file is not
supplied, it obtains login names from the password file. The informa‐
tion in helps it distinguish among different login names that share the
same user ID.
reads records in the form written by summarizes them by user ID and
name, then writes the sorted summaries to the standard output as total
combines the functionality of and into one program. It takes the same
input format as (but does not accept the ctmp argument) and writes the
same output as
These commands are typically used as shown below:
For the output of if the user IDs are identical, determines the order
in which the user names are sorted.
If is not specified in the environment or is set to the empty string,
the value of is used as a default. If is not specified or is set to
the empty string, a default of ``C'' (see lang(5)) is used instead of
If any internationalization variable contains an invalid setting,
behaves as if all internationalization variables are set to ``C'' (see
Although it is possible to distinguish among login names that share
user IDs for commands run normally, it is difficult to do this for
those commands run from for example (see cron(1M)). More precise con‐
version can be done by faking login sessions on the console via the
program in acct(1M).
A memory segment of the mean memory size is a unit of measure for the
number of bytes in a logical memory segment on a particular processor.
The mean memory size may overflow for values greater than
