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 representing 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/sysstat/README.Debian file for details.
