System Accounting

In BSD, sa(8) provides functionality similar to the Linux sar(1) command, which is part of the ssystat suite. sa(8) can provide detailed statistics such as

• The average number of I/O operations per execution

• Per command statistics including number of calls, elapsed time, total CPU, and average number of I/O operations

• Per user statistics including number of commands invoked, total CPU time, and total number of I/O operations

These statistics can be used to determine a system's baseline and to watch for anomalies in behavior.
