2. Introduction

This document describes how to enable system process accounting on a Linux host and the usage of various process accounting commands. It is intended for users running kernel versions greater than or equal to 1.3.73 (tested on RedHat™ 4.1 kernel 2.0.27). Kernels older than 1.3.73 may need a patch in order to use the process accounting feature.
