NAME

acctonenable/disable system accounting

SYNOPSIS

accton [file]

DESCRIPTION

With an argument naming an existing file, accton causes system accounting information for every process executed to be placed at the end of the file. If no argument is given, accounting is turned off.
accton is usually started at boot time, and can be enabled by setting the following in /etc/rc.conf.local:
accounting=YES
See rc(8) and rc.conf(8) for more information on the boot process and enabling daemons.
Log rotation of the default accounting file, /var/account/acct, is performed by the daily(8) maintenance script.
