NAME

       accounting - Grid Engine accounting file format

DESCRIPTION

       An    accounting    record    is    written   to   the   Grid   Engine   accounting   file
       $SGE_ROOT/$SGE_CELL/common/reporting for each finished job if accounting=true is specified
       in    the    sge_conf(5)    reporting_params.    This   occurs   at   intervals   of   the
       accounting_flush_time specified in the same place.  The accounting file  is  processed  by
       qacct(1) to derive accounting statistics.

       If  output to the reporting(5) file is enabled, accounting records containing similar data
       are written there.  They include "intermediate" records  written  at  midnight  for  long-
       running jobs, not just ones written at the end of the jobs, and so may be more appropriate
       to process for some purposes than the accounting file.

FORMAT

       Each job is represented by a line in the accounting file. Empty  lines,  and  lines  which
       contain  one  character  or  less  are  ignored  by  qacct.  Accounting record entries are
       separated by colon (':') characters. The entries denote in their order of appearance:

   1. qname
       Name of the cluster queue in which the job has run.

   2. hostname
       Name of the execution host.

   3. group
       The effective group id of the job owner when executing the job.

   4. owner
       Owner of the Grid Engine job.

   5. job_name
       Job name.

   6. job_number
       Job identifier (job number).

   7. account
       An account string as specified by the qsub(1) or qalter(1) -A option.

   8. priority
       Priority value assigned to the job, corresponding to the priority parameter in  the  queue
       configuration (see queue_conf(5)).

   9. submission_time
       Submission time in seconds since the Unix epoch (1970-01-01 00:00:00 UTC).

   10. start_time
       Start time in seconds since the epoch.

   11. end_time
       End time in seconds since the epoch.

   12. failed
       Indicates the problem which occurred in case a job failed (at the system level, as opposed
       to the job script or binary having non-zero exit status, see  below).   Possibly  the  job
       could not be started on the execution host (e.g. because the owner of the job did not have
       a valid account on that machine), or didn't finish successfully (e.g. because an execution
       host  crashed).  If Grid Engine tries to start a job multiple times, there may be multiple
       entries in the reporting file corresponding to the same job ID.  See sge_status(5)  for  a
       list.

   13. exit_status
       Exit  status  of  the  job script (or Grid Engine-specific status in case of certain error
       conditions).  The exit status is determined by following the normal shell conventions.  If
       the  command terminates normally the value of the command is its exit status.  However, in
       the case that the command exits abnormally, a value of  0200  (octal),  128  (decimal)  is
       added to the value of the command to make up the exit status.

       For  example:  If  a  job dies through signal 9 (SIGKILL) - probably issued by Grid Engine
       through qdel(1), or because the job exceeded time or memory hard limits -  then  the  exit
       status  is  128 + 9 = 137.   The  reason Grid Engine killed a job is recorded in the execd
       messages file at "W" or "I" level, depending on why it was killed.

   14. ru_wallclock
       Difference between end_time and start_time (see above), except that if the job  fails,  it
       is zero.

   15. ru_utime
   16. ru_stime
   17. ru_maxrss
   18. ru_ixrss
   19. ru_ismrss
   20. ru_idrss
   21. ru_isrss
   22. ru_minflt
   23. ru_majflt
   24. ru_nswap
   25. ru_inblock
   26. ru_oublock
   27. ru_msgsnd
   28. ru_msgrcv
   29. ru_nsignals
   30. ru_nvcsw
   31. ru_nivcsw
       These  entries  follow  the contents of the standard Unix rusage structure as described in
       getrusage(2).  Depending on the operating system where the job was executed, some  of  the
       fields may be 0.

   32. project
       The project which was assigned to the job.

   33. department
       The department which was assigned to the job.

   34. granted_pe
       The parallel environment which was selected for the job.

   35. slots
       The number of slots which were dispatched to the job by the scheduler.

   36. task_number
       Array job task index number.

   37. cpu
       The CPU time usage in seconds.  The value may be affected by the ACCT_RESERVED_USAGE execd
       parameter (see sge_conf(5)).

   38. mem
       The integral  memory  usage  in  Gbytes  seconds.   The  value  may  be  affected  by  the
       ACCT_RESERVED_USAGE execd parameter (see sge_conf(5)).

   39. io
       The  amount  of data transferred in input/output operations in GB (if available, otherwise
       0).  On Linux, this is summed over calls to read(2), pread(2),  write(2),  and  pwrite(2);
       thus  it  includes  i/o  via  cache,  and  may not reflect data actually written to filing
       system.

   40. category
       A string specifying the job category.  This contains a space-separated pseudo options list
       for the job, with components as follows:

       -U user_list
              An  owner/group  ACL  list composed from host_conf(5), sge_pe(5), And queue_conf(5)
              user_lists/xuser_lists entries.  Entries from sge_conf(5) are not considered  since
              they can only cause a job to be accepted/rejected at submit time.  Omitted if there
              are no such configuration entries.

       -P project_list
              Like -U, but for project/xproject entries.

       -u owner
              The owner's user name, if it was referenced in any RQS (see sge_resource_quota(5)).
              Omitted if there was no such reference.

       -q queue_list
              The hard queue list (only if one was specified).

       -masterq queue_list
              The master queue list (only if one was specified).

       -l resource_list
              The hard resource list (only if hard resources were specified).

       -soft -l resource_list
              The soft resource list (only if soft resources were specified).

       -pe pe_name pe_range
              The parallel environment specified for the job (only for parallel jobs).

       -ckpt ckpt_name
              The job's checkpointing environment (only if one was specified).

       -I y   Present only for interactive jobs.

       -ar ar_id
              The  advance  reservation  into  which  the  job  was  submitted  (only  if one was
              specified).

   41. iow
       The input/output wait time in seconds (if available, otherwise 0).

   42. pe_taskid
       If this identifier is not equal to NONE, the task was part of  a  parallel  job,  and  was
       passed  to  Grid Engine via the qrsh -inherit interface.  Such records are not produced if
       the PE's accounting_summary parameter is false (see sge_pe(5)).

   43. maxvmem
       The maximum vmem size in bytes.  The value may  be  affected  by  the  ACCT_RESERVED_USAGE
       execd parameter (see sge_conf(5)).

   44. arid
       Advance  reservation  identifier. If the job used the resources of an advance reservation,
       then this field contains a positive integer identifier; otherwise the value is "0".

   45. ar_sub_time
       Advance reservation  submission  time  if  the  job  uses  the  resources  of  an  advance
       reservation; otherwise "0".
