How do I use the sadf command?.

Post by DK907 » 2020/02/05 20:55:14

I am following an example in a book and I am trying to display sar information from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM on January 15. I entered
sadf -s 9:00:00 -e 17:00:00 /var/log/sa/sa15 like it says in the book but the sadf just displays "Usage: sadf" and the options for sadf.
The /var/log/sa/sa15 file exists on my virtual machine. I don't know what the problem is.

If you just want to visualize, use sar.
sadf is more suitable to read sar data and export it in specific format -like csv.
