Projects and tasks are used to label and separate workloads. The extended accounting subsystem is used to monitor resource consumption by workloads that are running on the system. Extended accounting produces accounting records for the workload tasks and processes.
For an overview of extended accounting and example procedures for administering extended accounting, see Chapter 4, Extended Accounting (Overview), in Oracle Solaris Administration: Oracle Solaris Zones, Oracle Solaris 10 Zones, and Resource Management and Chapter 5, Administering Extended Accounting (Tasks), in Oracle Solaris Administration: Oracle Solaris Zones, Oracle Solaris 10 Zones, and Resource Management.
The extended accounting framework has been expanded for zones. Each zone has its own extended accounting files for task and process-based accounting. The extended accounting files in the global zone contain accounting records for the global zone and for all non-global zones. The accounting records contain a zone name tag. The global zone administrator can use the tag during the extraction of per zone accounting data from the accounting files in the global zone.
