UNISOL® JobAcctTM is a job accounting and
chargeback software package for UNIX, Linux and Windows systems. UNISOL JobAcct
was the first true project level system activity chargeback product, first
introduced in 1988. UNISOL JobAcct performs "actual cost"
accounting and chargeback for each user, group, project and cost center, or,
"proportional" chargeback on a project/department level.
Accounting can be restricted to specific commands or can include all
commands, with individual charges broken down into:
- connect usage
- disk usage
- memory usage
- miscellaneous charges
- cpu usage
- disk I/O operations
- pages printed
- database usage (connect, cpu, I/O, memory)
are produced with charges itemized for each user, group, project chargeback
number, and cost center, and can include addresses for direct mailing to
users and their organizations. Reports can be easily added or modified with
awk or other report writing programs. ASCII reports (flat files) can also
be generated and easily reformatted for use with databases or other
Features of UNISOL JobAcct include:
UNISOL JobAcct replaces the
standard system accounting summary commands, and uses system dependent
control files in order to analyze and summarize system accounting data
according to user specifications.

application usage, cpu usage, memory usage, disk space usage, printer usage
and miscellaneous charges by user, group, project, and cost center.
- SQL Server Accounting. Tracks database connect time,
cpu usage and disk I/O operations, by session, user and project.
- DB2 Accounting. Tracks database connect time,
cpu usage, and disk I/O operations by session, user and project.

chargeback level accounting charges, including percentage information
(of both resource usage and revenue sources) for each chargeable field, and
generate pie-charts of system usage at the chargeback number level.
- Direct account billing and project-level budget tracking and reporting.
- User-friendly menus/forms management interface simplifies the
configuration of JobAcct control tables and the generation of standard and/or
- Java and X-Windows (Motif)
