NAME

       qacct - report and account for Grid Engine usage

SYNOPSIS

       qacct   [-ar   [ar_id]]   [-A   Account]   [-b  BeginTime]  [-d  Days]  [-e  EndTime]  [-g
       [GroupId|GroupName]]  [-h   [HostName]]   [-help]   [-j   [job_id|job_name|pattern]]   [-l
       attr=val,...]   [-m]  [-o  [Owner]]  [-u  [Owner]]  [-pe [PEname]] [-q [wc_queue]] [-slots
       [SlotNumber]] [-t task_id_range_list] [-P [Project]] [-D [Department]]  [-f  AcctFileName]
       [-E]

DESCRIPTION

       The  qacct  utility  scans  the  accounting  data  file (see accounting(5)) and produces a
       summary of information for wall-clock time, CPU time, and system time for  the  categories
       of  host  name,  queue  name, group name, owner name, job name, job ID, and for the queues
       meeting the resource requirements as specified with the -l switch.  Combinations  of  each
       category  are  permitted.  Alternatively,  all  or specific jobs can be listed with the -j
       switch.  For example the search criteria could include summarizing  for  a  queue  and  an
       owner, but not for two queues in the same request.

       Note that results including parallel jobs depend on the value of accounting_summary in the
       parallel environment definition (see sge_pe(5)).  If it is false, there is  an  accounting
       record  for  slave  tasks  as  well  as  master  tasks  so  that,  for example, there is a
       contribution to CPU time from each task.  Note that the slot count reported for each  task
       is the total for the job, not that allocated to the slave.

OPTIONS

       -ar [ar_id]
              The  ID  of the advance reservation for which usage is summarized.  If ar_id is not
              given, accounting data are listed for each advance reservation separately.

       -A Account
              The account for jobs to be summarized.

       -b BeginTime
              The  earliest  start  time   for   jobs   to   be   summarized,   in   the   format
              [[CC]YY]MMDDhhmm[.SS].  See also the -d option. If CC is not specified, a YY of <70
              means 20YY.  If the -E option is specified, this specifies  the  earliest  job  end
              time instead.

       -d Days
              The number of days for which to summarize and print accounting information. If used
              together with the -b BeginTime option (see above), jobs started (or,  with  the  -E
              option,  finished) within BeginTime to BeginTime+Days are counted. If used together
              with -e EndTime (see below) option, selection is from EndTime-Days.  With  neither,
              consider the last Days.

       -e EndTime
              The   latest   start   time   for   jobs   to   be   summarized,   in   the  format
              [[CC]YY]MMDDhhmm[.SS].  See also the -d option. If CC is not specified, a YY of <70
              means  20YY.  If the -E option is specified, this specifies the latest job end time
              instead.

       [-f AcctFileName]
              The accounting file to be used.  "-" means use standard  input.   If  omitted,  the
              system default accounting file is processed.

       -g [GroupId|GroupName]
              The  numeric system group id or the group alphanumeric name of the job owners to be
              included in the  accounting.  If  GroupId/GroupName  is  omitted,  all  groups  are
              accounted.

       -h [HostName]
              The  case-insensitive  name  of  the  host  upon  which  accounting  information is
              requested. If the name is omitted, totals for each host are listed separately.

       -help  Display help information for the qacct command.

       -j [job_id|job_name|pattern]
              The name, an expression for matching names, or ID of the job during  execution  for
              which  accounting information is printed. If neither a name nor an ID is given, all
              jobs are listed.
              This option changes the output format of qacct. If  activated,  CPU  times  are  no
              longer  accumulated  but  "raw"  per-job  accounting  information  is  printed in a
              formatted form instead.  CPU time (seconds), integrated memory usage (GB  seconds),
              total i/o (bytes), i/o wait time (seconds), and maximum virtual memory (bytes).

       -l attr=val,...
              A  resource  requirement specification which must be met by the queues in which the
              jobs being accounted were executing. The resource request is very  similar  to  the
              one described in qsub(1).

       -m     Ignore  slave  tasks of parallel jobs.  Only relevant when  when accounting_summary
              is false, and probably only useful with -j to prune the output.

       -o [Owner] | -u [Owner]
              The name of the owner of the jobs for which accounting statistics are assembled. If
              the  optional  Owner argument is omitted, a listing of the accounting statistics of
              all job owners present in the accounting file is produced.  -u and -o are synonyms.

       -pe [PEname]
              The name of the parallel environment for which usage is summarized.  If  PEname  is
              not given, accounting data are listed for each parallel environment separately.

       -q [wc_queue_name]
              An  expression  for  queues  for  which  usage  is  summarized. All queue instances
              matching the expression will be listed. If no expression is  specified,  a  cluster
              queue summary will be given.

       -slots [SlotNumber]
              The  number  of  queue  slots  for which usage is summarized.  If SlotNumber is not
              given, accounting data are listed for each number of queue slots separately.

       -t task_id_range_list
              Only available together with the -j option described above.

              The -t switch specifies the array job task range, for which accounting  information
              should be printed. Syntax and semantics of task_id_range_list are identical to that
              one described under the -t option to qsub(1).  Please see there  also  for  further
              information on array jobs.

       -P [Project]
              The  name  of  the project for which usage is summarized.  If Project is not given,
              accounting data are listed for each relevant project separately.

       -D [Department]
              The name of the department for which usage is summarized.   If  Department  is  not
              given, accounting data are listed for each relevant department separately.

       -E     When  selecting  times  with -b, -e, -d, use the job end time rather than the start
              time to select.  This may be useful because the accounting record is written at the
              job end.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       SGE_ROOT       Specifies the location of the Grid Engine standard configuration files.

       SGE_CELL       If  set,  specifies  the default Grid Engine cell. To address a Grid Engine
                      cell qacct uses (in the order of precedence):

                             The name of the cell specified in the environment variable SGE_CELL,
                             if it is set.

                             The name of the default cell, i.e. default.

       SGE_DEBUG_LEVEL
                      If  set,  specifies  that debug information should be written to stderr. In
                      addition the level of detail in which debug  information  is  generated  is
                      defined.

       SGE_QMASTER_PORT
                      If  set,  specifies  the  tcp  port  on which sge_qmaster(8) is expected to
                      listen for communication requests.  Most installations will use a  services
                      map entry for the service "sge_qmaster" instead to define that port.

       SGE_EXECD_PORT If  set, specifies the tcp port on which sge_execd(8) is expected to listen
                      for communication requests.  Most installations will  use  a  services  map
                      entry for the service "sge_execd" instead to define that port.
