    System accounting on FreeBSD


    I have looked into a simple accounting tool for our FreeBSD network. Our needs are quite modest: CPU cycles used and hard disk space used per user. If the latter is not possible, then hard disk space allocated per user. We dont have a need to collect duration of logon or printer usage.

    I found an online resource stating that issuing the command "turnacct on" would enable accounting on UNIX System V, but this is an unknown command for FreeBSD. Furthermore the ports do not seem to have any accounting package. Is there any other way to collect this data?

    Thanks in advance

    For the record: I have since found the following source:
