For the prupose of balancing long running applications over a pool machines, I've decided to use unix process accounting to give me data as to each user's impact on the machine. I will use this data then to even out the impact of the x many users over y machines.
After a cursery search, I was unable to find any perl modules that manipulate or utilize the data generated by acct. Do they exsist?
Does anyone here have expierence using pacct and it's children? Am I barking up the wrong tree you think? And how can I use perl to best leverage this data?
