dump-acct: print an acct/pacct file in human-readable format


dump-acct - print an acct/pacct file in human-readable format


dump-acct [-r|--reverse] [-R|--raw] [-n|--num recs] [--byte-swap] [--format] [--ahz freq] [-h|--help] [files]


The dump-acct command transforms the output file from the accton format to the human-readable format: one record per line. Each record consists of severald fields which are separated by character "|" (the meaning of concreate field depends on the version of kernel package - with which the accton file was created).


The following options are supported:
-r, --reverse
Print the output in reverse order.
-R, --raw
The records will be printed without any parsing.
-n, --num NUMRECS
Display only the first NUMRECS number of records.
Swap the bytes (relative to your system's native byte order) in --raw output.
Set output format with --raw option.
--ahz FREQ
Set the AHZ (platform dependent frequency in Hertz) to FREQ.
-h, --help
Print a help message and the default location of the process accounting file and exit.
