NAME
       acct(2,5) - execution accounting file(1,n)

SYNOPSIS
       #include <sys/acct.h>

       the system call
              acct(2,5)("/somewhere/accountingfile");
       will start the process accounting. Each time(1,2,n)  a  process  terminates  a
       record  for  this  process  is  appended  to  the accounting file.  The
       accounting  structure  struct  acct(2,5)  is  also  described  in(1,8)  the  file(1,n)
       /usr/include/linux/acct.h.
