Daily Usage Report
The daily usage report
gives a breakdown of system resource utilization by user.
``Sample Daily Usage Report''
shows a sample of this type of report.

Sample Daily Usage Report
The data provided includes the following:
The login name of the user.
This information is useful because
it identifies a user who has multiple login names.
The amount of time a user's
process used the central processing unit.
This category is divided into
PRIME and NPRIME
The accounting system's idea of this division
is located in the
A cumulative measure of the amount of memory
a process uses while running.
The amount shown reflects kilobyte segments of
memory used per minute.
This measurement is also divided into
PRIME and NPRIME amounts.
The amount of ``real time'' used.
This column identifies the amount of time
a user was logged in to the system.
If the amount of time is high
and the number shown in the column
# OF PROCS
is low, you can safely conclude
the owner of the relevant login is
someone who logs in first thing in the morning
and hardly touches the terminal the rest of the day.
You need to talk to this kind of user.
This column is also divided into
PRIME and NPRIME utilization.
When the disk accounting programs have been run,
the output is merged into
the total accounting record (daytacct)
and shows up in this column.
This disk accounting is accomplished by the program
For accounting purposes, a ``block'' is 512 bytes.
# OF PROCS
This column reflects
the number of processes that were invoked by the user.
If this column
has large numbers,
a user may have a shell procedure
that has run out of control.
# OF SESS
The number of times a user logged on to the system is
shown in this column.
# DISK SAMPLES
how many times disk accounting was run to obtain the
average number of
An often unused field in the total accounting record, the
field represents the total accumulation of special services
charged against the user by the
procedure is used to levy charges against a user
for special services, such as file restores.
