The reporting file is available in the non-commercial version. You just 
need to enable it and tell it what things you would like it to report 
on. Hopefully someone on this list can guide you from memory but if not 
I can dig into my notes.

Besides the SQL back end and front end query and reporting tools ARCO 
just uses the standard reporting and accounting files. The one "extra" 
thing that it does that is not included with the non-commercial grid 
engine is that while processing the reporting/accounting files it also 
pauses to calculate/create additional interesting "derived" data tidbits.
