NAME
acctmerg - merge or add total accounting files SYNOPSIS
/usr/lib/acct/acctmerg [-a] [-i] [-p] [-t] [-u] [-v] [filename] ... DESCRIPTION
acctmerg reads its standard input and up to nine additional files, all in the tacct format (see acct.h(3HEAD)) or an ASCII version thereof. It merges these inputs by adding records whose keys (normally user ID and name) are identical, and expects the inputs to be sorted on those keys. OPTIONS
-a Produce output in ASCII version of tacct. -i Produce input in ASCII version of tacct. -p Print input with no processing. -t Produce a single record that totals all input. -u Summarize by user ID, rather than by user ID and name. -v Produce output in verbose ASCII format, with more precise notation for floating-point numbers. EXAMPLES
Example 1 Using the acctmerg command. The following sequence is useful for making "repairs" to any file kept in this format: example% acctmerg -v <filename1>filename2 Edit filename2 as you want: example% acctmerg -i <filename2>filename1 ATTRIBUTES

NAME
fwtmp, wtmpfix - manipulate connect accounting records SYNOPSIS
/usr/lib/acct/fwtmp [-ic] /usr/lib/acct/wtmpfix [file]... DESCRIPTION
fwtmp reads from the standard input and writes to the standard output, converting binary records of the type found in /var/adm/wtmpx to formatted ASCII records. The ASCII version is useful when it is necessary to edit bad records. wtmpfix examines the standard input or named files in utmpx format, corrects the time/date stamps to make the entries consistent, and writes to the standard output. A hyphen (-) can be used in place of file to indicate the standard input. If time/date corrections are not performed, acctcon(1M) will fault when it encounters certain date-change records. Each time the date is set, a pair of date change records are written to /var/adm/wtmpx. The first record is the old date denoted by the string "old time" placed in the line field and the flag OLD_TIME placed in the type field of the utmpx structure. The second record speci- fies the new date and is denoted by the string new time placed in the line field and the flag NEW_TIME placed in the type field. wtmpfix uses these records to synchronize all time stamps in the file. In addition to correcting time/date stamps, wtmpfix will check the validity of the name field to ensure that it consists solely of alphanu- meric characters or spaces. If it encounters a name that is considered invalid, it will change the login name to INVALID and write a diag- nostic to the standard error. In this way, wtmpfix reduces the chance that acctcon will fail when processing connect accounting records. OPTIONS
-ic Denotes that input is in ASCII form, and output is to be written in binary form. FILES
