SA(1M)                                                     SA(1M)

     NAME
          sa, accton - system accounting

     SYNOPSIS
          sa [ -abcjlnrstuv ] [ file ]

          /etc/accton [ file ]

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

          Sa reports on, cleans up, and generally maintains accounting
          files.

          Sa is able to condense the information in /usr/adm/acct into
          a summary file /usr/adm/savacct which contains a count of
          the number of times each command was called and the time
          resources consumed.  This condensation is desirable because
          on a large system acct can grow by 100 blocks per day.  The
          summary file is read before the accounting file, so the
          reports include all available information.

          If a file name is given as the last argument, that file will
          be treated as the accounting file; sha is the default.
          There are zillions of options:

          a    Place all command names containing unprintable charac-
               ters and those used only once under the name
               `***other.'

          b    Sort output by sum of user and system time divided by
               number of calls.  Default sort is by sum of user and
               system times.

          c    Besides total user, system, and real time for each com-
               mand print percentage of total time over all commands.

          j    Instead of total minutes time for each category, give
               seconds per call.

          l    Separate system and user time; normally they are com-
               bined.

          m    Print number of processes and number of CPU minutes for
               each user.

          n    Sort by number of calls.

     SA(1M)                                                     SA(1M)

          r    Reverse order of sort.

          s    Merge accounting file into summary file
               /usr/adm/savacct when done.

          t    For each command report ratio of real time to the sum
               of user and system times.

          u    Superseding all other flags, print for each command in
               the accounting file the user ID and command name.

          v    If the next character is a digit n, then type the name
               of each command used n times or fewer.  Await a reply
               from the typewriter; if it begins with `y', add the
               command to the category `**junk**.'  This is used to
               strip out garbage.
