NAME

sa2 - Write a daily report in the /var/log/sysstat directory.  

SYNOPSIS

/usr/lib/sysstat/sa2  

DESCRIPTION

The sa2 command is a shell procedure variant of the sar command which writes a daily report in the /var/log/sysstat/sardd file, where the dd parameter indicates the current day. The sa2 command handles all of the flags and parameters of the sar command.

The sa2 command is designed to be started automatically by the cron command.

 

EXAMPLES

To run the sa2 command daily, place the following entry in your root or adm crontab file:

5 19 * * 1-5 /usr/lib/sysstat/sa2 -A &

This will generate a daily report called /var/log/sysstat/sardd It will also remove reports more than one week old.  

Debian note

The Debian sysstat package has already placed such an entry in your system crontab. Please refer to the /usr/share/doc/sysstat/README.Debian file for details.  

FILES
