I once saw report that contained information, that within given time frame, total number of x cpu minutes, were used, and this was: - afterwards was list of uids (or usernames), and total number of cpu minutes used by all programs that this user ran in given time frame.

I thought that the program is/was sar, but I can't find any option to do it.

Any hint what program shows such reports?

You may be thinking of sa rather than sar. Take a look at GNU's process accounting site.
