Extended Accounting (Overview)

By using the project and task facilities that are described in Chapter 2, Projects and Tasks (Overview) to label and separate workloads, you can monitor resource consumption by each workload. You can use the extended accounting subsystem to capture a detailed set of resource consumption statistics on both processes and tasks.

The following topics are covered in this chapter.
