NAME

       accounting - Sun Grid Engine accounting file format

DESCRIPTION

       An  accounting record is written to the Sun Grid Engine accounting file
       for each job having finished.  The  accounting  file  is  processed  by
       qacct(1) to derive accounting statistics.

FORMAT

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

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

   hostname
       Name of the execution host.

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

   owner
       Owner of the Sun Grid Engine job.

   job_name
       Job name.

   job_number
       Job identifier - job number.

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

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

   submission_time
       Submission time (GMT unix time stamp).

   start_time
       Start time (GMT unix time stamp).

   end_time
       End time (GMT unix time stamp).

   failed
       Indicates the problem which occurred in case a 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). If Sun Grid Engine tries to start a job
       multiple times, this may lead to multiple  entries  in  the  accounting
       file corresponding to the same job ID.

   exit_status
       Exit  status  of  the job script (or Sun 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) then the
              exit status becomes 128 + 9 = 137.

   ru_wallclock
       Difference between end_time and start_time (see above).

       The remainder of the accounting entries follows  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.  The following entries are provided:

              ru_utime
              ru_stime
              ru_maxrss
              ru_ixrss
              ru_ismrss
              ru_idrss
              ru_isrss
              ru_minflt
              ru_majflt
              ru_nswap
              ru_inblock
              ru_oublock
              ru_msgsnd
              ru_msgrcv
              ru_nsignals
              ru_nvcsw
              ru_nivcsw

   project
       The project which was assigned to the job.

   department
       The department which was assigned to the job.

   granted_pe
       The parallel environment which was selected for that job.

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

   task_number
       Array job task index number.

   cpu
       The cpu time usage in seconds.

   mem
       The integral memory usage in Gbytes cpu seconds.

   io
       The amount of data transferred in input/output operations.

   category
       A string specifying the job category.

   iow
       The io wait time in seconds.

   pe_taskid
       If this identifier is set the task was part of a parallel job  and  was
       passed to Sun Grid Engine via the qrsh -inherit interface.

   maxvmem
       The maximum vmem size in bytes.

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

   ar_submission_time
       If  the  job  used  resources of an advance reservation then this field
       contains the submission time (GMT  unix  time  stamp)  of  the  advance
       reservation, otherwise the value is "0" .
