sadc and two shell procedures, sa1 and sa2, are used to sample, save, and process this data.
sadc, the data collector, samples system data n times, with an interval of t seconds between samples, and writes in binary format to ofile or to standard output. The sampling interval t should be greater than 5 seconds; otherwise, the activity of sadc itself may affect the sample. If t and n are omitted, a special record is written. This facility can be used at system boot time, when booting to a multi-user state, to mark the time at which the counters restart from zero. For example, when accounting is enabled, the svc:/system/sar:default service writes the restart mark to the daily data file using the command entry:
su sys -c "/usr/lib/sa/sadc /var/adm/sa/sa'date +%d'"
The shell script sa1, a variant of sadc, is used to collect and store data in the binary file /var/adm/sa/sadd, where dd is the current day. The arguments t and n cause records to be written n times at an interval of t seconds, or once if omitted. The following entries in /var/spool/cron/crontabs/sys will produce records every 20 minutes during working hours and hourly otherwise:
0 * * * 0-6 /usr/lib/sa/sa1 20,40 8−17 * * 1−5 /usr/lib/sa/sa1
See crontab(1) for details.
The shell script sa2, a variant of sar, writes a daily report in the file /var/adm/sa/sardd. See the OPTIONS section in sar(1) for an explanation of the various options. The following entry in /var/spool/cron/crontabs/sys will report important activities hourly during the working day:
5 18 * * 1−5 /usr/lib/sa/sa2 -s 8:00 -e 18:01 -i 1200 -A
