ProcedureHow to Deactivate Process, Task, and Flow Accounting

To deactivate process, task, and flow accounting, turn off each of them individually by using the acctadm command with the -x option.

  1. Become superuser or assume an equivalent role.

    Roles contain authorizations and privileged commands. For more information about roles, see Using the Solaris Management Tools With RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Basic Administration.

  2. Turn off process accounting.

    # acctadm -x process 
  3. Turn off task accounting.

    # acctadm -x task
  4. Turn off flow accounting.

    # acctadm -x flow
  5. Verify that task accounting, process accounting, and flow accounting have been turned off.
