       sa2 - Write a daily report in the /var/log/sysstat directory.




       The  sa2  command  is  a  shell  procedure variant of the sar command which writes a daily
       report in the /var/log/sysstat/sardd file, where the dd parameter  indicates  the  current
       day.  It 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.


       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 a daily report called /var/log/sysstat/sardd.

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


              Indicate the daily report file, where the dd parameter is a number representing the
              day of the month.
