About Network Accounting

You can use the extended accounting facility to set up network accounting on the system. Network accounting involves capturing statistics about network traffic in a log file. You can maintain records of traffic for tracking, provisioning, consolidation, and billing purposes. Later, you can see the log file to obtain historical information about network use over a period of time.
