acct - execution accounting file
If the kernel was compiled with the process accounting option enabled,
the system call
will start the process accounting. Each time a process terminates a
record for this process is appended to the accounting file. The
accounting structure struct acct is also described in the file
lastcomm(1), sa(1), acct(2), accton(8).
