TORQUE maintains accounting records for batch jobs in the following directory:
$TORQUEROOT defaults to /usr/spool/PBS and <TIMESTAMP> is in the form YYYYMMDD. These records include events, timestamps, and information on resources requested and used.
Records for four different event types are produced and are described in the following table.
|Record Marker||Record Type||Description|
|D||delete||job has been deleted|
|E||exit||job has exited (either successfully or unsuccessfully)|
|Q||queue||job has been submitted/queued|
|S||start||an attempt to start the job has been made (if the job fails to properly start, it may have multiple job start records)|
The following table offers accounting variable descriptions. Descriptions for accounting variables not indicated in the table, particularly those prefixed with Resources_List, are available at 2.1 Job Submission.
|ctime||time job was created|
|etime||time job became eligible to run|
|qtime||time job was queued|
|start||time job started to run|
