This file is read by sa1(8) and sa2(8) shell scripts from the sysstat's
set of tools. It consists of a sequence of shell variable assignments
used to configure sysstat logging. The variables and their meanings
The number of days during which a daily data file or a report
should be kept. Data files or reports older than this number of
days will be removed by the sa2(8) shell script. Data files and
reports are normally saved in the /var/log/sysstat directory,
but if HISTORY is greater than 28, the scripts use a tree of
directories under /var/log/sysstat.
Number of days after which daily data files are to be com-
pressed, either by gzip or bzip2.
Options that should be passed to sadc(8). With these options
(see sadc(8) manual page), you can select some additional data
which are going to be saved in daily data files. These options
are used only when a new data file is created. They will be
ignored with an already existing one.
