sysstat


DESCRIPTION
       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
       are:

       HISTORY
              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.


       COMPRESSAFTER
              Number  of  days  after  which  daily  data files are to be com-
              pressed, either by gzip or bzip2.


       SADC_OPTIONS
              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.
