The accounting log contains information needed for network charging. Upon completing a successful job transaction, accounting information is written to file /var/spool/uucp/.Admin/account. If the job transaction is a file transfer, then accounting information is written to file /var/spool/uucp/.Admin/account on the requesting site. If the job transaction is a remote execution, then accounting information is written to file /var/spool/uucp/.Admin/account on the executing (target) site.
Accounting is optional. Accounting information is collected only if an account file exists and is writable by uucp; the file is not created automatically. The system administrator can therefore start or stop accounting by creating or removing the accounting log.
The following is a typical accounting log entry:
user jobID size status class grade origsys origlogin \
time destsys destlogin device netID type command
