accounting file A file that contains records of the resources used by individual jobs. These records are required both to regulate the amount of resource used by a job and, in a commercial environment, to manage the charging for use of the system. As each job is started, an entry is opened in the accounting file into which records concerning system utilization are written as the job is processed. See also system accounting.
