The information that is collected can be specified through a series of probes. For example, there is a best-effort probe that collects information relevant to best-effort leases, such as the time the lease had to wait in the queue until it was allocated resources. Haizea includes several probes (see Appendix ) and also allows you to write your own probes (see Chapter )
The file where the collected data will be saved and the probes to use are specified in the [accounting] section of the configuration file:
[accounting] datafile: /var/tmp/haizea.dat probes: ar best-effort immediate utilization
This file is not human-readable, and there are two ways of accessing its contents: using the haizea-convert-data command or programmatically through Python. Both are described in this chapter.
