Keep all histories of commands - psacct
2011/07/11
 
Keep all histories of commands by accton. Histories of commands are kept in users' own history file but they are possible to delete by users himselves. So accton is useful because it is owned by root and users can not edit it.
[1] accton is included in psacct package. Install it.
[root@dlp ~]#
yum -y install psacct
[2] Start psacct. It's OK all, all histories of commands are kept.
[root@dlp ~]#
/etc/rc.d/init.d/psacct start

Starting process accounting:
[ OK ]

[root@dlp ~]#
chkconfig psacct on
[3] Output histories of commands by a command below.
[root@dlp ~]#
