Extended Accounting on a Solaris System With Zones Installed
The extended accounting subsystem collects and reports information for the entire system (including
non-global zones) when run in the global zone. The global administrator can also
determine resource consumption on a per-zone basis.
The extended accounting subsystem permits different accounting settings and files on a per-zone
basis for process-based and task-based accounting. The exacct records can be tagged with
the zone name EXD PROC ZONENAME for processes, and the zone name EXD TASK ZONENAME for
tasks. Accounting records are written to the global zone's accounting files as well
as the per-zone accounting files. The EXD TASK HOSTNAME, EXD PROC HOSTNAME, and EXD HOSTNAME records
contain the uname -n value for the zone in which the process or
task executed instead of the global zone's node name.
