Using ParaStation MPI accounting

ParaStation MPI may write accounting information about each finished job run on the cluster to /var/account/yyyymmdd, where yyyymmdd denotes the current accounting file in the form year, month and day.

To enable accounting, the special hardware accounter must be set within the ParaStation MPI configuration file for at least one node. On each configured node, an accounting daemon collecting all information for all jobs within the cluster will store the job information in the accounting file.

To list, sort and filter all the collected information, the command psaccview is available.

See psaccounter(8) and psaccview(8) for details.
