qacct - report and account for Sun Grid Engine usage
qacct [ -ar [ar_id] ] [ -A Account ] [ -b BeginTime ] [ -d Days ] [ -e EndTime ] [ -g [GroupId|GroupName] ] [ -h [HostName] ] [ -help ] [
-j [job_id|job_name|pattern] ] [ -l attr=val,... ] [ -o [Owner] ] [ -pe [PEname] ] [ -q [wc_queue] ] [ -slots [SlotNumber] ] [ -t
task_id_range_list ] [ -P [Project] ] [ -D [Department] ] [ -f AcctFileName ]
The qacct utility scans the accounting data file (see accounting(5)) and produces a summary of information for wall-clock time, cpu-time,
and system time for the categories of hostname, queue-name, group-name, owner-name, job-name, job-ID and for the queues meeting the
resource requirements as specified with the -l switch. Combinations of each category are permitted. Alternatively, all or specific jobs
can be listed with the -j switch. For example the search criteria could include summarizing for a queue and an owner, but not for two
queues in the same request.
The ID of the advance reservation for which usage is summarized. If ar_id is not given, accounting data is listed for each advance
The account for jobs to be summarized.
The earliest start time for jobs to be summarized, in the format [[CC]YY]MMDDhhmm[.SS]. See also -d option. If CC is not specified,
a YY of < 70 means 20YY.
The number of days to summarize and print accounting information on. If used together with the -b BeginTime option (see above), jobs
started within BeginTime to BeginTime + Days are counted. If used together with the -e EndTime (see below) option, count starts at
EndTime - Days.
The latest start time for jobs to be summarized, in the format [[CC]YY]MMDDhhmm[.SS]. See also -d option. If CC is not specified, a
YY of < 70 means 20YY.
The accounting file to be used. If omitted, the system default accounting file is processed.
The numeric system group id or the group alphanumeric name of the job owners to be included in the accounting. If GroupId/GroupName
is omitted, all groups are accounted.
The case-insensitive name of the host upon which accounting information is requested. If the name is omitted, totals for each host
are listed separately.
-help Display help information for the qacct command.
The name, a expression for matching names, or ID of the job during execution for which accounting information is printed. If neither
a name nor an ID is given all jobs are enlisted.
This option changes the output format of qacct. If activated, CPU times are no longer accumulated but the "raw" accounting informa-
tion is printed in a formatted form instead. See accounting(5) for an explanation of the displayed information.
A resource requirement specification which must be met by the queues in which the jobs being accounted were executing. The resource
request is very similar to the one described in qsub(1).
The name of the owner of the jobs for which accounting statistics are assembled. If the optional Owner argument is omitted, a list-
ing of the accounting statistics of all job owners being present in the accounting file is produced.
The name of the parallel environment for which usage is summarized. If PEname is not given, accounting data is listed for each par-
allel environment separately.
A expression for queues for which usage is summarized. All queue instances matching the expression will be listed. If no expression
is specified, a cluster queue summary will be given.
The number of queue slots for which usage is summarized. If SlotNumber is not given, accounting data is listed for each number of
queue slots separately.
Only available together with the -j option described above.
The -t switch specifies the array job task range, for which accounting information should be printed. Syntax and semantics of
task_id_range_list are identical to that one described under the -t option to qsub(1). Please see there also for further informa-
tion on array jobs.
The name of the project for which usage is summarized. If Project is not given, accounting data is listed for each owning project
The name of the department for which usage is summarized. If Department is not given, accounting data is listed for each owning
SGE_ROOT Specifies the location of the Sun Grid Engine standard configuration files.
SGE_CELL If set, specifies the default Sun Grid Engine cell. To address a Sun Grid Engine cell qacct uses (in the order of prece-
The name of the cell specified in the environment variable SGE_CELL, if it is set.
The name of the default cell, i.e. default.
If set, specifies that debug information should be written to stderr. In addition the level of detail in which debug infor-
mation is generated is defined.
If set, specifies the tcp port on which sge_qmaster(8) is expected to listen for communication requests. Most installations
will use a services map entry for the service "sge_qmaster" instead to define that port.
SGE_EXECD_PORT If set, specifies the tcp port on which sge_execd(8) is expected to listen for communication requests. Most installations
will use a services map entry for the service "sge_execd" instead to define that port.
