Extended Accounting Overview

Extended accounting (exacct) is an accounting framework for the Oracle Solaris operating system that provides additional functionality to that provided by the traditional SVR4 accounting mechanism. Traditional SVR4 accounting has these drawbacks:

The exacct framework addresses the limitations of traditional accounting and provides a configurable, open, and extensible framework for the collection of accounting data.

For a more extensive overview of extended accounting, see Chapter 4, Extended Accounting (Overview), in Oracle Solaris Administration: Oracle Solaris Zones, Oracle Solaris 10 Zones, and Resource Management.
