acctcom(1)				  User Commands 			       acctcom(1)

       acctcom - search and print process accounting files

       acctcom [-abfhikmqrtv] [-C sec] [-e time] [-E time]
	    [-g group] [-H factor] [-I chars] [-l line]
	    [-n pattern] [-o output-file] [-O sec] [-s time]
	    [-S time] [-u user] [filename]...

       The  acctcom  utility  reads filenames, the standard input, or /var/adm/pacct, in the form
       described by acct.h(3HEAD) and writes selected records to  standard  output.  Each  record
       represents the execution of one process. The output shows the COMMAND NAME, USER, TTYNAME,
       START TIME, END TIME, REAL (SEC), CPU  (SEC),  MEAN  SIZE  (K),	and  optionally,  F  (the
       fork()/exec()  flag: 1 for fork() without exec()), STAT (the system exit status), HOG FAC-
       TOR, KCORE MIN, CPU FACTOR, CHARS TRNSFD, and  BLOCKS READ (total blocks  read  and  writ-

       A  `#' is prepended to the command name if the command was executed with super-user privi-
       leges. If a process is not associated with a known terminal, a  `?' is printed in the TTY-
       NAME field.

       If  no	filename is specified, and if the standard input is associated with a terminal or
       /dev/null (as is the case when using `&' in the shell), /var/adm/pacct is read; otherwise,
       the standard input is read.

       If any filename arguments are given, they are read in their respective order. Each file is
       normally read forward, that is, in chronological order by  process  completion  time.  The
       file  /var/adm/pacct  is  usually  the current file to be examined; a busy system may need
       several such files of which all but the current file are found in /var/adm/pacctincr.

       The following options are supported:

       -a		 Show some average statistics about the processes selected.  The  statis-
			 tics will be printed after the output records.

       -b		 Read backwards, showing latest commands first. This option has no effect
			 when standard input is read.

       -f		 Print the fork()/exec() flag and system exit status columns in the  out-
			 put. The numeric output for this option will be in octal.

       -h		 Instead  of  mean  memory size, show the fraction of total available CPU
			 time consumed by the process during its execution. This "hog factor"  is
			 computed as (total CPU time)/(elapsed time).

       -i		 Print columns containing the I/O counts in the output.

       -k		 Instead of memory size, show total kcore-minutes.

       -m		 Show mean core size (the default).

       -q		 Do  not  print  any output records, just print the average statistics as
			 with the -a option.

       -r		 Show CPU factor (user-time/(system-time + user-time)).

       -t		 Show separate system and user CPU times.

       -v		 Exclude column headings from the output.

       -C sec		 Show only processes  with  total  CPU	time  (system-time  +  user-time)
			 exceeding sec seconds.

       -e time		 Select processes existing at or before time.

       -E time		 Select  processes ending at or before time. Using the same time for both
			 -S and -E shows the processes that existed at time.

       -g group 	 Show only processes belonging to group. The group may be  designated  by
			 either the group ID or group name.

       -H factor	 Show only processes that exceed factor, where factor is the "hog factor"
			 as explained in option -h above.

       -I chars 	 Show only processes transferring more characters than the cutoff  number
			 given by chars.

       -l line		 Show only processes belonging to terminal /dev/term/line.

       -n pattern	 Show  only commands matching pattern that may be a regular expression as
			 in regcmp(3C), except + means one or more occurrences.

       -o output-file	 Copy selected process records in the input data format  to  output-file;
			 suppress printing to standard output.

       -O sec		 Show only processes with CPU system time exceeding sec seconds.

       -s time		 Select  processes  existing  at  or  after  time,  given  in  the format

       -S time		 Select processes starting at or after time.

       -u user		 Show only processes belonging to user. The user may be  specified  by	a
			 user  ID,  a login name that is then converted to a user ID,  `#' (which
			 designates only those processes executed with superuser privileges),  or
			 `?'  (which designates only those processes associated with unknown user

       /etc/group	     system group file
