ACCTON(8)               NetBSD System Manager's Manual               ACCTON(8)

NAME
     accton -- enable/disable system accounting

SYNOPSIS
     accton [file]

DESCRIPTION
     With an argument naming an existing file, accton causes system accounting
     information for every process executed to be placed at the end of the
     file.  If no argument is given, accounting is turned off.

     The default accounting file is /var/account/acct.  Typically, accounting
     is enabled by rc scripts during the boot process.  In NetBSD, one may
     enable accounting by setting the variable ``accounting'' to ``YES'' in
     /etc/rc.conf.

     Note that, traditionally, the system accounting log file can not be
     rotated cleanly by newsyslog(8).  Instead, a default installation of
     NetBSD rotates /var/account/acct using the /etc/daily script.

FILES
     /var/account/acct  Default accounting file.
