Process accounting allows you to
keep track of the following data about each process
run on your system: the user and group
IDs of those using the process,
the beginning and elapsed times of the process, the CPU
time for the process (divided between users and the system),
the amount of memory used, the commands run,
and the controlling tty during the process.
Every time a process dies, the exit
program collects this data and writes it
to the file /var/adm/pacct.
