sa1

       file.

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/lib/sysstat/sa1 [ --boot | interval count ]

DESCRIPTION
       The sa1 command is a shell procedure variant of the  sadc  command  and
       handles  all  of the flags and parameters of that command. The sa1 com-
       mand collects and stores binary data in the /var/log/sysstat/sadd file,
       where  the  dd  parameter  indicates  the current day. The interval and
       count parameters specify that the record should be written count  times
       at  interval  seconds.  If  no arguments are given to sa1 then a single
       record is written.

       The sa1 command is designed to be started  automatically  by  the  cron
       command.


OPTIONS
       --boot This  option  tells  sa1  that the sadc command should be called
              without specifying the interval and count parameters in order to
              insert  a  dummy  record,  marking  the  time  when the counters
              restarts from 0.


EXAMPLES
       To create a daily record of sar activities, place the  following  entry
       in your root or adm crontab file:

       0 8-18 * * 1-5 /usr/lib/sysstat/sa1 1200 3 &

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

FILES
       /var/log/sysstat/sadd
              Indicate the daily data file, where the dd parameter is a number
              representing the day of the month.
