SA2(8)                        Linux User's Manual                       SA2(8)

NAME
       sa2  -  Create a report from the current standard system activity daily
       data file.

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 sarDD or the sarYYYYMMDD file, where YYYY
       stands for the current year, MM for the current month and  DD  for  the
       current  day.   By  default the report is saved in the /var/log/sysstat
       directory.  The sa2 command will also remove reports more than one week
       old  by  default.   You  can  however  keep  reports for a longer (or a
       shorter) period by setting the HISTORY environment variable.  Read  the
       sysstat(5) manual page for details.

       The  sa2  command  accepts  most 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
       crontab file:

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

       This will generate by default  a  daily  report  called  sarDD  in  the
       /var/log/sysstat  directory,  where the DD parameter is a number repre-
       senting the day of the month.

   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

              default  location.  YYYY stands for the current year, MM for the
              current month and DD for the current day.
