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" .
