Process accounting on True64 kernel 5.1

I have enabled process accounting and it works fine in all cases except it will not register any resource usage for user daemon. This is really the only user I'm concerned with because the system is running a search engine as this user. Is this user automaticaly dropped by the accounting process ? Has anyone else seen this kind of behaviour ?

Thanks all.

Re: Process accounting on True64 kernel 5.1

To check the obvious, do you see any TIME registered against user "daemon" when the search engine is active with :

ps -fudaemon

Re: Process accounting on True64 kernel 5.1

Here is a truncated version of the output you wanted. Note the TIME field has time associated with it. Unfortunately its line wrapping, but you get the picture. I should note that this same problem is happing on Solaris 2.X as well, so maybe its a process accounting problem on SVR4 UN*X's ?
