accounting - Sun Grid Engine accounting file format
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 statis-
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
Name of the cluster queue in which the job has run.
Name of the execution host.
The effective group id of the job owner when executing the
Owner of the Sun Grid Engine job.
Job identifier - job number.
An account string as specified by the qsub(1) or qalter(1)
Priority value assigned to the job corresponding to the
priority parameter in the queue configuration (see
Submission time (GMT unix time stamp).
Start time (GMT unix time stamp).
End time (GMT unix time stamp).
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 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 conven-
tions. 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.
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:
The project which was assigned to the job.
The department which was assigned to the job.
The parallel environment which was selected for that job.
The number of slots which were dispatched to the job by the
Array job task index number.
The cpu time usage in seconds.
The integral memory usage in Gbytes cpu seconds.
The amount of data transferred in input/output operations.
A string specifying the job category.
The io wait time in seconds.
If this identifier is set the task was part of a parallel
job and was passed to Sun Grid Engine via the qrsh -inherit
The maximum vmem size in bytes.
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" .
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
